Resource Guide for Rural Entrepreneurs
USDA Rural Development (RD) is pleased to offer this multimedia guide to help rural entrepreneurs. In collaboration with our robust network of federal partners, this guide provides resources both for start-ups, and already-established rural businesses.
RD offers more than 40 loan, grant, and technical assistance programs to help improve the economy and quality of life in rural America. Many of these programs can also support community-based entrepreneurial planning and growth. We partner closely with community leaders and developers, local, state, and Tribal governments, cooperatives, nonprofits, private organizations, and a nationwide network of participating lenders skilled at building local economies.
- Some programs directly support entrepreneurs and individual rural businesses
- Some programs support organizations that partner with rural businesses
