The Rural Business Development Grant Program offers funding to provide technical assistance and training to rural communities nationwide for the purpose of improving passenger transportation services and/or facilities.

To combat a key threat to economic prosperity, rural workforce and quality of life, USDA encourages applications that will support the Administration's goal to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with Substance Use Disorder (including opioid misuse) in high-risk rural communities by strengthening the capacity to address:

  • Prevention: Reducing the occurrence of Substance Use Disorder (including opioid misuse) among new and at-risk users as well as fatal substance-related overdoses through community and provider education, and harm reduction measures including the strategic placement of overdose reversing devices, such as naloxone
  • Treatment: Implementing or expanding access to evidence-based practices for Substance Use Disorder (including opioid misuse) treatment such as medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Recovery: Expanding peer recovery and treatment options that help people start and stay in recovery

Eligible applicants are organizations with experience in providing Technical Assistance and training to rural communities nationwide for the purpose of improving passenger transportation service or facilities.
