Title: Amendment of Regulation Describing Infrastructure Under PWEDA 
Abstract: EDA is amending the regulation located at 13 CFR 301.11 that generally describes that EDA may fund both construction and non-construction (e.g., business support services) infrastructure necessary to meet a region's economic development needs and goals. EDA plans to amend the regulation to eliminate the list of examples that is provided in this regulation to provide more flexibility to adapt to new types of innovative infrastructure developed in response to changing economic circumstances (e.g., broadband). Further, a list of examples of the types of infrastructure EDA may fund is more appropriately communicated to potential applicants through an EDA Notice of Funds Opportunity rather than regulation.
