Abstract The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2012. During the year, EDA continued to work collaboratively with public- and private-sector partners to break down bureaucratic silos and maximize the effectiveness of its programs in supporting economic growth and job creation in regions throughout the United States. Two initiatives that EDA led in FY 2012 the Rural Jobs and Innovation Accelerator Challenge and the Advanced Manufacturing Jobs and Innovation Accelerator Challengeexemplify these efforts. The Rural Jobs and Innovation Accelerator Challenge marshaled the resources of EDA and 12 other federal agencies to make $9 million worth of investments in 13 organizations across the country that today are leveraging their local assets to support industry clusters and partnerships. Their programs will have a catalytic effect, helping entrepreneurs and small businesses foster innovation, increase regional competitiveness, and employ highly skilled workers in rural regions throughout the country.
