Rural communities can now make a connection with USDA and federal resources available to assist in their area's eConnectivity development.

This toolkit presents USDA resources that support e-Connectivity and aims to help customers navigate the agencies within the USDA to find the opportunity that best fulfills their need. From grants and loans, to partnerships and in-person consultations, USDA can support a wide variety of project types for a diversity of customers. While the resources included in this toolkit can directly support broadband infrastructure growth, research and technology access, it should not be used as a comprehensive guide for all USDA resources that can indirectly promote the use of broadband technology.
