Supporting Entrepreneurial Economic Development Act or SEED Act - Amends the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965 to allow a recipient of an economic adjustment grant to directly expend or redistribute grant funds to public and private organizations in the form of non-debt financing of for-profit companies in business incubators.
