Rural Community Grant Opportunity

Community Facility Grants Objectives:

Community Programs provides grants to assist in the development of essential community facilities in rural areas and towns of up to 20,000 in population. Grants are authorized on a graduated scale. Applicants located in small communities with low populations and low incomes will receive a higher percentage of grants. Additional information is available by clicking here.

It appears to us that this program offers an excellent opportunity for rural law enforcement agencies to apply for funding to purchase P25 interoperable communications equipment. For more information, contact the local USDA Rural Development office in your area. A listing is available by clicking here. If you need assistance in preparing your application for an interoperable communications system, please give us a call at 205.854.2611 or drop us an email to
