DRA is opening the 2019 application cycle to provide investments through its available funding opportunities. DRA funding programs are tailored to address specific infrastructure improvements, help develop the Delta’s workforce and local industries, and enhance regional economic opportunities.
Organizations and communities can apply online at funding.dra.gov. The application process runs through May 31, and funds are available in DRA’s footprint in Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.
Communities and organizations are encouraged to work closely with their local development district office, which has staff members trained by the DRA, to assist with the application process.
Information on state-specific funding allocations, funding program eligibility requirements and guidelines, and contact information for local development districts are available here.
