Rural Development ARRA Programs & Awards

Rural Development has significant responsibilities related to the Recovery Act. The Agency has been charged with deploying $4.36 billion in recovery funds, that when implemented will deliver more than $20 billion in loans and grants to improve economic opportunity and the quality of life in rural America. In addition to the goals set in the Recovery Act (View Rural Development’s ARRA Implementation Plan), deployment of these funds will further the Agency’s strategic goals and objectives. Loans and grants will be awarded to build high-speed broadband infrastructure, construct or improve rural water and waste disposal systems, finance homes for rural families, build critical community facilities, such as rural hospitals, community centers and public safety facilities, and to fund new rural business ventures. All of the programs receiving Recovery Act funding are listed in the chart to the right.
