USDA Rural Business Opportunity Grant Program offers grants for FY2012
Public bodies, nonprofit corporations, institutions of higher education, rural cooperatives and Native American tribes may apply for grants through the Rural Business Opportunity Grant (RBOG) Program to support projects to improve economic conditions in rural areas.
