POWER Initiative |
The POWER Initiative supports efforts to create a more vibrant economic future for coal-impacted communities by cultivating economic diversity, enhancing job training and re-employment opportunities, creating jobs in existing or new industries, and attracting new sources of investment.
ARC implementation grants are expected to range between $500,000 and $1.5 million. Interested communities must complete a pre-application through the ARC-EDA POWER Portal. Pre-applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
