Grant Assistance

(Applies to Shasta County Only)

U.S. Economic Development Administration Disaster Supplemental Funding

EDA awards grants to eligible entities to address economic challenges in disaster-impacted areas. These grants support disaster recovery activities in areas receiving a major disaster designation as a result of natural disasters. EDA disaster grants will be made by regional offices under the Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) program, which can support a wide range of construction and non-construction activities. Through this program, EDA can support disaster recovery planning strategies as well as the implementation of disaster recovery projects. Projects, among other things, must have a nexus to applicable disaster recovery and resilience efforts and be consistent with at least one of the DOC Disaster Recovery Investment Priorities. EDA plans to accept proposals on a rolling basis until all funds are obligated.
