Grants for Community and Economic Development

Local community and economic development (CED) depends on a combination of public and private funding. Grant dollars are an important source of funding for initiatives that create better-paying jobs and infrastructure to support revitalization, affordable housing, or improved systems for education or health care. The Federal Reserve Banks of Atlanta and Philadelphia's recent analysis of foundation grants for community and economic development Off-site link found the geographic distribution of grant funding is highly uneven. On a per capita basis, grant dollars flow to some metro areas much more readily than to others.
