Invest in Community Facilities

Support Public Health and Safety

Essential public health and safety facilities are key in ensuring that rural areas enjoy the same basic quality of life and services enjoyed by those in urban areas. These types of projects include fire and rescue stations, village and town halls, health care clinics, hospitals, adult and child care centers, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation centers, public buildings, schools, libraries, and many other community-based initiatives that promote wellness in rural areas. These facilities not only improve the basic quality of life but assist in the development and sustainability of rural America.

Develop and Improve Essential Public Services

Public bodies, non-profit organizations and federally recognized American Indian Tribes can use these funds to construct, expand or improve facilities that provide health care, education, public safety, and public services in rural areas. These amenities help increase the competitiveness of rural communities in attracting and retaining businesses that provide employment and services for their residents.
