Rural Business Development Grant

USDA’s Rural Development is now accepting applications for its Rural Business Development Grant (RBDG), which combines the former Rural Business Opportunity Grant (RBOG) and Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG).  Funding may be used for a variety of purposes ranging from equipment and construction to training and education.  Interested applicants should contact their local USDA Rural Development Office and/or regional IAC Technical Assistance Specialist since application details vary by state.  The program does include a Tribal funding set-aside.
