In partnership with Virginia Tech (VT), UEDA has been funded by the Economic Development Administration (EDA) to develop national networks focused on addressing economic resiliency and equity and convene EDA University Centers to advance regions. Elevating these ideas to a national level, alongside collaborative discussions, will provide learning opportunities and resource-sharing for regions looking for additional ways to tackle these issues.
This American Resilience & Equity Networks Initiative (ARENI) provides a structure for region-to-region collaboration on resilience and equity issues and EDA’s University Centers through regular convenings, online forums, and resource libraries. UEDA is requesting proposals for a contract for a logistics/IT/marketing support organization to manage communication for the ARENI networks.
