Redesigned Website Offers More Content with Easier Navigation
Today, the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) re-launched its website: www.eda.gov. The redesigned website provides improved functionality and benefits for users including easier navigation with links to the most useful pages, more case studies and access to a state-by-state resources directory.
EDA conducted research and analysis to help the agency identify and understand how its stakeholders need to use the site. The new site includes quick links to the pages most in demand and provides prospective EDA applicants with easily accessible information on the application process, best practices and case studies. The state-by-state resources directory provides critical local resources including EDA’s regional office contacts, state government and regional planning contacts and contacts for organizations providing local technical assistance and economic development planning.
The website also connects visitors to EDA’s social media outlets, ensuring that the agency’s stakeholders can be connected to the latest news and opportunities.
