The Idaho Department of Commerce is accepting applications to the Rural Community Block Grant program. The mission of the Rural Community Block Grant program is to provide funds to distressed rural areas for building public infrastructure in support of economic expansion and job creation. Created by the Idaho State Legislature in 2001, this state-funded grant program is a component of the Rural Initiative. Eligible Applicants: * Cities with a population of less than 25,000 or for projects that have a measurable rural benefit—the sole beneficiary of the project cannot be a large city. * Counties may apply for countywide projects that have a measurable rural benefit – the sole beneficiary of the project cannot be a large city. * Indian Tribes may apply if the project site is located on reservation land and within a community of less than 25,000 or the project has a measurable rural benefit and the sole beneficiary of the project cannot be a large city. * The three eligible applicants categories may sub-grant Rural Community Block Grant funds to an eligible and Idaho Commerce approved sub-recipient. Eligible activities include extension of streets, water and sewer lines, and/or utilities to a site for a new business or industrial park; acquisition or construction of buildings for lease or purchase by a company; and provision of telecommunications, power, gas, and rail upgrades necessary for business expansions. City halls and schools are not eligible. A local match is required, but the amount has not been specified. Applications will be due on the third Monday in December, March, June and September. Applications received after this date will not be presented to the Council at that quarterly meeting, but the following meeting. 12/16
