Fostering an Inclusive Recovery: Building Back Better Through EDA’s American Rescue Plan Programs

The Aspen Institute will host a webinar fireside chat on January 10, 2022 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET on the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s (EDA’s) newly launched American Rescue Plan Program and how it, alongside other Federal investment opportunities, represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to directly benefit previously underserved communities affected by COVID-19. Participants will learn how cities are working together to take advantage of these investment opportunities; understand steps communities can take now to learn, prepare, and apply; and learn about ways the EDA is looking to invest in underserved communities. The conversation features Alejandra Y. Castillo, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development. Bruce Katz, Co-Founder and Inaugural Executive Director for Nowak Metro Finance Lab, Drexel University, will moderate.
