Approximately $3 million is available through the LDD Community Support Pilot Program, which targets capacity-building resources to the LDDs in DRA’s service area.
The LDD Community Support Pilot Program is a non-competitive grant program open to the 45 LDDs in DRA’s eight-state service area. This program targets capacity-building and community support resources to LDDs that are helping economically distressed, isolated areas of distress, and persistent poverty communities navigate federal, state, and other resources that impact economic and community development. The program is designed to enhance the region’s resiliency and ability to compete for and leverage resources.
The purpose of the LDD Community Support Pilot Program NOFA is to provide an overview of the program and the specific requirements needed to complete an application.
