Upcoming Workshop in Orangeburg on USDA Rural Development Grants and Funding for Small Business and Farming

This workshop will center around the USDA Rural Energy for America Grant (REAP) which has a November 1 deadline and the USDA Value Added Producer Grant (Waiting on Notice). Many rural small business or farms are eligible for the REAP grant which funds 25% of an energy efficiency upgrade project. Any farmer who has been in business for a couple of years and currently producing a value added product should consider the Value added Producer Grant. Criteria to apply for these grants, funding projects and other resources to assist in rural business development will be discussed.
