Notes to SEFA
Note 9: Economic Adjustment Assistance (CFDA 11.307)

The objective of the Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) Economic Adjustment Assistance program is to address the needs of communities experiencing adverse economic changes that may occur suddenly or over time including, but not limited to, any of the following causes:

  • Military base closures or realignments
  • Depletion of natural resources
  • Presidentially-declared disasters or emergencies
  • International trade

Economic Adjustment Assistance awards may be used to:

  • Develop comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)
  • Develop other strategy to alleviate long-term economic deterioration or a sudden and severe economic dislocation
  • Fund a project implementing that CEDS or other strategy (including grants for construction and grants for Revolving Loan Funds [RLFs])

EDA grants to capitalize or recapitalize RLFs are most commonly used for business lending but may also fund public infrastructure or other authorized lending purposes if specifically allowed for in the terms and conditions of the recipient’s award.

Per Uniform Guidance, federal funds used to capitalize an RLF are not subject to the limitation on the period of availability of federal funds but continue to retain their federal character in perpetuity or until the grant is terminated. As such, required reporting and EDA oversight on the RLF also continue in perpetuity or until the grant is terminated.

Disclose the dollar value of funding related to RLF loans received under this program. For the purposes of calculating federal expenditures, RLF recipients are not permitted to factor in an allowance for bad debt.
