What resources would winning pilot cities need to carry out the Challenge Competition? d. How much technical assistance or involvement will the pilot cities need for the Challenge Competition?

Which practices (e.g., smart growth; creative cities; healthy cities; sustainable economic development; regional innovation clusters) should the SC2 Pilot Challenge include? 4. What information should EDA and members of the SC2 Interagency Partnership consider in selecting the six city Grantees? 5. What information should EDA and members of the SC2 Interagency Partnership consider in selecting multidisciplinary teams as eligible participants to submit a proposal for a comprehensive economic development strategic plan? 6. To what extent should the SC2 Pilot Challenge encourage multidisciplinary teams to develop plans that speak to both the economic development and land use needs or opportunities of the city and region? 7. What criteria should EDA and members of the SC2 Interagency Partnership consider in connection with the evaluation of proposals submitted by the multidisciplinary teams? 8. What financial incentives should the Federal government use to encourage strong participation among economic development professionals? 9. Would one large prize serve as a more powerful incentive to having a robust competition, or should the competition be tiered in which multidisciplinary teams compete over the course of two or three ‘‘tiers’’ with winning teams who advance to the succeeding round receiving increasing levels of prizes? 10. Are there any issues that EDA and members of the SC2 Interagency Partnership should consider in connection with budgetary and time frame constraints imposed on local governments? EDA’s Statutory Authority and the America COMPETES Act EDA’s authorizing statute is the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965, as amended (42 U.S.C. 3121 et seq.) (PWEDA). The specific authority for the Economic Adjustment Assistance program is section 209 of PWEDA (42 U.S.C. 3149). EDA’s regulations at 13 CFR Parts 300– 302 and subpart A of 13 CFR Part 307 set forth the general and specific VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:30 Jul 08, 2011 Jkt 223001 regulatory requirements applicable to the Economic Adjustment Assistance program. EDA’s regulations and PWEDA are accessible on EDA’s Web site at http://www.eda.gov/InvestmentsGrants/ Lawsreg.xml. Section 105 of America COMPETES Act amends the Stevenson-Wydler Technology Innovation Act of 1980 (15 U.S.C. 3701 et seq.) to permit any agency head to ‘‘carry out a program to award prizes competitively to stimulate innovation that has the potential to advance the mission of the respective agency.’’ The Act authorizes agencies to use Federal appropriated funds to design prizes, administer prizes, and offer monetary prizes for competitions. EDA’s Matching Share Requirement EDA requires a non-federal matching share for its investments. As such, EDA recognizes that local governments may be in the process of developing or ratifying operational budgets for the coming year on a parallel timeline with the anticipated publication of the FFO for the SC2 Pilot Challenge. Generally, the amount of an EDA grant may not exceed fifty percent of the total cost of the project. Projects may receive up to eighty percent of total cost, based on the relative needs of the region in which the project will be located, as determined by EDA, and in certain circumstances based on need, up to 100 percent. See section 204(a) of PWEDA (42 U.S.C. 3144) and 13 CFR 301.4(b)(1). Given that EDA anticipates selecting distressed cities, it is likely EDA will be able to set the federal share at eighty percent or higher. In addition, the Grantee should expend matching funds at the same rate as granted funds in order to avoid reaching the project completion stage without having secured the needed proportionate amount required in the cooperative agreement with EDA. For example, consider a $100,000 project that receives eighty percent ($80,000) award funds and has twenty percent ($20,000) cash matching funds. If $25,000 is spent on the project in the first quarter of implementation, then the Grantee should expend $20,000 (eighty percent) from award funds and $5,000 (twenty percent) in cash matching funds.
