The investment policy of the Economic Development Administration at the Department of Commerce is to establish sustainable job growth and build durable regional economies. The best click is Program and Funding Opportunities. Regional offices are the best points of contact: They are available at Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Chicago, IL; Denver, CO; Philadelphia, PA; and Seattle, WA. These projects might require a great deal of effort, but in economically distressed areas, these contacts could help.

The Employment and Training Administration of the Department of Labor (DOL) offers business support. For example, click on Business & Industry to review the Work Opportunity Tax Credit and the Enterprise Zone Incentives. Most states have an Office of Workforce Development, which may be of assistance identifying workers and training opportunities.
