OTHER FUNDING SOURCES - FEDERAL GRANT PROGRAMS

Community Facilities Grant Program
To assist in the development of essential community facilities in rural areas and towns of up to 20,000 in population. Grants are authorized on a graduated scale. Applicants located in small communities with low populations and low incomes will receive a higher percentage of grants. The Community Facilities Grant Program is typically used to fund projects under special initiatives, such as Native American community development efforts; child care centers linked with the Federal government's Welfare-to-Work initiative; Federally-designated Enterprise and Champion Communities, and the Northwest Economic Adjustment Initiative area. In most instances, projects that receive grant assistance have a high priority and are highly leveraged with other loan and grant awards.

Eligibility:Grant funding limitations are based on population and income, economic feasibility, and availability of funds. Deadline: When funds are exhausted.

Funding:Grant assistance may be available for up to 75 percent of project costs.
