POWER Initiative: $65.8M in Available Funding


The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) have created the Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization (POWER) Initiative to stabilize and grow the economic future of coal-impacted communities through job creation, capital investment, workforce development or reemployment opportunities. Through this program, $65.8 million in competitive federal funding will be awarded to communities and regions affected by job losses in coal mining, coal power plant operations, and coal-related supply chain industries.

Register for the May 27th Regional Workshop to learn about the POWER Initiative, funding and eligibility requirements, how to identify potential projects and collaborators, and the process for developing project proposals.
