dynamic business environment in rural America is the goal of Rural
Business Programs (BP).
BP works in partnership with
the private sector and the community-based organizations to provide
financial assistance and business planning. BP helps fund projects that
create or preserve quality jobs and/or promote a clean rural environment.
The financial resources of
BP are often leveraged with those of other public and private credit
source lenders to meet business and credit needs in under-served areas.
Recipients of these programs
may include individuals, corporations, partnerships, cooperatives, public
bodies, nonprofit organizations, Indian tribes, and private companies.
