On March 1, the Puget Sound Regional Council published the application materials and instructions for the FY 2012 EDD Public Works Prioritization Process.
Each year, PSRC ranks local public works projects based on their economic development impact, and then sends those non-binding recommendations to the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA). The goal of this Public Works Prioritization Process is to help the most deserving local projects pursue federal funding.
To participate in this process, local jurisdictions and eligible non-profit agencies are invited to submit projects for prioritization. Projects should be related to the construction or rehabilitation of essential public infrastructure and development facilities necessary to generate private investments that result in higher-skill, higher-wage jobs. Please feel free to forward this information on to any eligible organization.
For more information including application materials and instructions, visit: http://psrc.org/econdev/publicworks
Applications should be completed and returned to the Puget Sound Regional Council by 5:00 pm on Friday, April 6, 2012.
