Solicitation of Applications for the National Technical Assistance, Training, Research and Evaluation Program: Information Dissemination Project and Business Incubator Research Project
The Economic Development Administration (EDA) publishes this notice to solicit applications for funding under its National Technical Assistance, Training, Research and Evaluation Program (NTA Program). On June 21, 2007, EDA published in the Federal Register a notice regarding NTA Program funding, to solicit applications for funding that address one or both of the following two projects: (1) Information dissemination to practitioners serving economically distressed areas; and (2) a national symposium to bring together leaders to discuss current and future trends in economic development. On July 6, 2007, EDA published another notice in the Federal Register to solicit applications for funding that address one or more of four research projects, including one relating to business incubators. After completing its review of applications submitted in response to the June 21, 2007 and July 6, 2007 Federal Register notices, EDA decided not to make an award for either the information dissemination project or the business incubator research project. Through this notice, EDA solicits applications for funding that address only the information dissemination project or the business incubator research project. EDA encourages applicants to read the descriptions of both projects as EDA has provided additional information on important requirements that were not in the original Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) announcements and Federal Register notices.
