Recompete Pilot Program

Federal Agency


Economic Development Administration (EDA)


To create and connect people to good jobs in persistently distressed communities and create renewed economic opportunity in communities that have for too long been forgotten.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

This NOFO is for Phase 2 of the Recompete Pilot Program. Only Recompete Finalists selected in Phase 1 are eligible for this round of funding.

Decarbonization Considerations

The NOFO lists multiple ideas for areas to potentially focus on, including: "Critical enabling infrastructure (e.g., brownfield redevelopment, workforce training centers near workers)". Consider workforce training opportunities for the next generation of skilled labor in renewable energy development and construction, energy audits, energy efficiency and electrification installation, and EV charging deployment and maintenance.

Equity Considerations

Workforce transition and development is a key aspect of a just energy transition. A renewable energy workforce development program could provide disadvantaged with good paying, long-term job prospects.
