Powering Economic Growth in the Nation’s Coal-Impacted Communities
The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration has provided a $38.8 million investment to grow the economy in the nation’s coal-impacted communities. The SWCC REDI Center is part of this initiative.
