The Economic Impact Analysis (EIA) tool shows how a project’s spending on staff, supplies, equipment and other expenses benefits a community. Based on the information provided, this tool uses formulas to estimate economic impact of grant program investments on local economies. These calculations help rural program grantees assess performance, and advocate for resources that contribute to program sustainability and improved health care for rural populations.
