    Default USDA Grant Help

    Does anyone have any experience with USDA Grants, specifically the Rural Community Development Initiative? So far, I have found their application process very confusing. The deadline is May 5th.

    Have you been in touch with your local USDA regional office and their grant liaison?

    E-mailed the local office. I got an auto reply telling me I would have to wait until Monday. Just thought I would poke around on here and see if I could scare up and tips...

    That's why you want to be in contact with the office that will handle the app from their end. Everyone I've been in contact with has been great. It is a lot of paperwork but that's why they tell you up front what the qualification levels are so you can decide whether or not they'll have enough money available to you that you can afford your projects. If not, no paperwork. If so, free money is free money.
