The COVID-19 Federal Rural Resource Guide from the USDA is a resource for rural leaders looking for federal funding and partnership opportunities to help address this pandemic.
USDA and its Federal partners have programs that can be used to provide immediate and long-term assistance to rural communities affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. These programs can support recovery efforts for rural residents, businesses and communities through:
- technical, training, and management assistance
- financial assistance
- state and local assistance
This resource matrix organizes funding opportunities identified in the CARES Act and other federal resources that can help support rural America. Opportunities are categorized by customer and assistance type. For more information on the immediate actions USDA is taking to respond to COVID-19, visit usda.gov/coronavirus.
