Rural Development Resource Guide

The Rural Development Resource Guide is an online searchable database that provides valuable and time-saving information for communities, regarding programs (loans, grants, etc.) made available for rural development through state and federal organizations/agencies. Due to the wide array of federal and state programs available to community leaders, it can be overwhelming to search each individual agency’s website. Finding the right program or agency to request assistance with a specific local issue is often the key to success.

The Rural Development Resource Guide assists community leaders by providing one source to easily access the programs most commonly used by community leaders in rural areas. Searches can be completed by using the agency’s name or a topic.
