Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) Program in Oregon

Oregon's RBEG program provides small grants (typically $20,000 to $50,000) to nonprofit economic development groups, public bodies and tribes for precisely targeted technical assistance, training and other activities to support the development of small, private business enterprises in rural areas. RBEG funds are allocated through two funding pools: a general pool and a Native American pool.

RBEG is not a grant for individuals or private businesses. Entrepreneurs seeking grants can find information in the following publication:  Financing Your Business in Oregon (PDF, 243 KB)
