In order to qualify for the new fiscal year grant, a county must first comply with annual reporting requirements from the previous year’s funding distribution. As a result, we have established a two-step process—first, annual reporting; and second, application for the new fiscal year grant.
All requirements for completion of the annual report are available here:

Once you have submitted your completed report, the Center for Rural Development will be notified, and will review the report for compliance. You will then be given access to the application portal wherein you will apply for FY2022 grant funding.
FY 2021 Annual Report Submission Deadline: September 1st
FY 2022 Rural County Grant Program Part A Application Deadline: October 1st
To qualify for a Rural County Grant, the county must form and have a functioning County Economic Development Advisory
Board (CED Board). Each CED board assists and advises the county legislative body on the following:
1. Applying for a rural county grant.
2. Determining what economic development projects and activities should be funded with the grant money.
3. Preparing required annual reports.
County Match Requirements and Reporting
In 2021, and subsequent years, a rural county may not receive additional Rural County Grant Part A or B unless the county
demonstrates a funding match equal to a percentage of the awarded amount. Matching percentages are as follows:
• 10% match for a county of the sixth class
• 20% match for a county of the fifth class
• 30% match for a county of the fourth class
• 40% match for a county of the third class
Subsequent Rural County Grants also require that a county 1) has complied with the reporting requirements of the
Governor’s Rural Partnership Board, and 2) has complied with reporting requirements for all previous years the county
has received a grant.
