ARC POWER INITIATIVE
The Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization (POWER) Initiative is a congressionally funded initiative that targets federal resources to help communities and regions that have been affected by job losses in coal mining, coal power plant operations and coal-related supply chain industries due to the changing economics of America's energy production.
POWER supports efforts to create a more vibrant economic future for coal-impacted communities by cultivating economic diversity, enhancing job training and re-employment opportunities, creating jobs in existing or new industries, and attracting new sources of investment.
DHCD offers planning grants through the ARC program to increase the potential for project success and impact. Contact Tamarah Holmes to discuss applying for a planning grant or to have an initial conversation as you get started developing your project.
