It really sound to me like you would really benefit from taking a grant writing class from one of us.

The cap on USDA grants is $50k, varying by state. Any amount over that point has to be through a USDA loan so on the average truck you'd have to finance it through them, since not being able to finance it through a commerical lender is a prerequisite.
AFG is a tough nut to crack but it can be done for any size coverage area if the need is there. The smallest I can think of in recent history was a pumper in the 2011 AFG for $250k in a town of 400 in the midwest. Have several others in the hunt this year but no signs of progress yet (like most playing the waiting game).
