Appalachian Regional Commission


The Appalachian Regional Commission is engaged in planning for the allocation of Bipartisan Infrastructure Law advance appropriations for fiscal years 2023, 2024, 2025 and 2026. Programs funded by those appropriations will support activities that help bring the 13-State Appalachian Region into economic parity with the Nation. The Appalachian Regional Commission States are Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Eligible uses are expected to support the Appalachian Regional Commission goals of Building Appalachian Businesses; Building Appalachia’s Workforce Ecosystem; Building Appalachia’s Infrastructure; Building Regional Culture and Tourism; and Building Community Leaders and Capacity.

Maximum Appalachian Regional Commission share ranges from 30 percent-80 percent, depending on the county’s level of economic distress. Appalachian Regional Commission participation can increase the allowable Federal share up to 100 percent in a grant. Waivers are available in some circumstances.
