  • Making moves: The Build Back Better Regional Challenge is part of the EDA’s contribution to the American Rescue Plan. The challenge provides the opportunity for entities to participate in strengthening industries and the economy around the country.
  • Contribution: A total of 529 applicants proposed projects that would build resilient economies, and NWA UAMS is 1 of 60 finalists for phase 1. The next phase will narrow down who will receive a grant of up to $100m to implement projects.
