Our Office of Economic & Community Development at ECG has curated grants and funding opportunities to assist our #GAEnergyCities and communities in obtaining essential resources for advancing current industries and attracting new businesses. Below is our compilation of funding options tailored to your specific needs. Our featured opportunity is from the U.S. Department of Labor.

The WORC Initiative aims to fund grants that create economic mobility, address inequities for historically marginalized communities of color, rural areas, and other underserved and underrepresented communities. These grants are designed to produce high-quality employment outcomes for workers in the Appalachian, Delta, and Northern Border regions, enabling them to remain and thrive in their communities.

The Initiative provides grant funds to help impacted communities develop local and regional workforce development solutions aligned with existing economic development strategies and community partnerships, promoting new, sustainable job opportunities and long-term economic vitality with a focus on equity and underserved populations. WORC Round 6 places a strong emphasis on three key focus areas: enhancing access to Good Jobs, prioritizing equity, and sustaining impact.
