USDA will make grants to public bodies and private nonprofit corporations (such as states, counties, cities, townships, and incorporated towns and villages, boroughs, authorities, districts, and Indian tribes on federal and state reservations) to provide associations technical assistance and/or training with respect to essential community facilities programs.

  • Prepare reports and surveys necessary to request financial assistance to develop community facilities

Eligible entities include public bodies, non-profit organizations, and federally recognized tribes in rural areas. Rural areas include cities, villages, townships, towns and federally recognized tribal lands outside the boundaries of a city of 20,000 or more.
