Is there a population number per square mile that would keep aregional grant as Rural instead of suburban.
Square miles served 2000 = 100 persons per square mile
sq miles 9000 = 23 persons per sq mile
even though the second example is over the mark for a rural dept classification, could the case be made to make it a rural application.
This would mean the difference to the host in funding 20% as apposed to 5%

The cost share has nothing to do with rural or suburban classification. It is based on the population with the region the grant will affect.
See page 59 of the Grant Guidance
