From the Document: "The Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration (EDA) supports state and local planning and economic development projects, among other activities. In response to the decline of coal industry activity and the closure of nuclear plants [hyperlink], Congress has approved additional funding for EDA grant programs that support economic transition strategies and help affected communities build economic development capacity. This Insight considers the role, criteria, and funding history of two EDA initiatives designed to facilitate economic transitions--the Assistance to Coal Communities [hyperlink] (ACC) and the Assistance to Nuclear Closure Communities [hyperlink] (NCC) initiatives."
