Applications are being accepted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development for grants that support businesses and jobs in rural Nevada. The Rural Business Development Grant has several uses to rural areas: technical assistance, training and other activities.
Individual businesses can’t apply for these grants, but they are open to cities, counties, nonprofits, economic development authorities and federally recognized tribes.
“In the past, the Nevada allocation has amounted to about $130,000,” a press release from the USDA stated. “In addition, a separate Native American set-aside that is funded through a national competition is also available.”
The grant program has helped towns in Southern Nevada in the past, including Caliente.
The grant application deadline is March 31. For more, head to https://bit.ly/2tmiQtM
