For Fiscal Year 2017, proposals will be accepted for the following areas:

  • rural regional planning and development councils,
  • rural entrepreneurship development,
  • regional infrastructure projects, and
  • rural health care organizations.

Eligible applicants must be a local government, institute of higher education, regional council, or be a 501(c)(3) IRS tax designation or similar, and serve a regional or statewide rural constituency.

Projects must be regional, covering two or more counties, or intergovernmental (including municipalities or local governments).
