Grant Opportunity - FOUNDATION FOR RURAL SERVICE

  • 1.  Grant Opportunity - FOUNDATION FOR RURAL SERVICE

    Hi everyone,

    One of my colleagues recently came across a funding opportunity that I think may be relevant for some of you.  The purpose of the grant is to support local efforts to build and sustain a high quality of life in rural America, and the total can range from $250 to $5,000.  It is available for several categories, all of them related in some way to using tech/broadband:

    • Business and Economic Development
      • Entrepreneurship and job creation programs.
    •  Community Development
      • Outreach programs that promote technology learning and innovation. Programs that encourage rural development through arts and tourism.
    • Education
      • Technology in the classroom (computers, smartboards), curriculum development, extracurricular activities and distance-learning programs.
    • Telecommunications
      • Broadband adoption projects; applications of broadband, including in healthcare, agriculture, and education; and technology infrastructure, such as community hot spots

    You can find more information and apply here.  Best of luck!
