Rural Business Enterprise Grants
The USDA's RBEG program provides grants for rural projects that finance and facilitate development of small and emerging rural businesses in areas with population under 50,000. The companies considered will employ 50 or less and have less than $1 million in projected revenues. Rural public entities, Indian tribes, and rural private non-profits are eligible to apply for funding. Funds may be used for a wide variety of development activities including acquisition and development of land; construction and renovation of buildings, equipment, roads and utilities; training and technical assistance; and project planning.
