As part of its ongoing commitment to rural communities across the country, the Foundation for Rural Service provide annual grants for communities served by NTCA – the Rural Broadband Association – members. The goal of this program is to support local efforts to build and sustain a high quality of life in rural America. Grants are concentrated in four major areas:
- Business Development
- Community Development
Grants can range from $250-$5,000, for a grand total of $25,000 that can go back in to rural communities, every year.
FRS gives priority to proposals that foster collaboration among different community agencies, and local government, reflect a comprehensive approach to community development, promote community participation and engagement, and make rural communities a better place to live and work.
