ETA/U. S. Department of Labor (DOL), in partnership with the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and the Delta Regional Authority (DRA), announce the available funds for demonstration grant projects supporting alignment of workforce development with existing strategies and plans for economic development

1. ) The Appalachian region, as defined in 40 U.S.C.

14102(a)(1), and 2. ) The Lower Mississippi Delta (Delta) region, as defined in 7 U.S.C.
