USDA seeks proposals for rural business grants

Some readers in the past have suggested that the Village of Dorchester (our local government) be more aggressive in seeking outside help for renovation of Dorchester's main street.  Here's one possibility.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced it is seeking project proposals for the Rural Business Development Grant Program in Nebraska.

RBDG funds are designed to support rural businesses and may be used for a number of purposes, including targeted technical assistance, training, economic development planning and for the establishment of revolving loan funds.

Eligible applicants include municipalities, state agencies, non-profit corporations, federally recognized tribes and colleges and universities.

Project proposals are due by 4:30 p.m.  April 7 and must be emailed to Brant Richardson at
