Foundation for Rural Service

Funding Agency:
Foundation for Rural Service



As part of its ongoing commitment to rural communities across the country, FRS provides annual grants for rural communities served by NTCA members. The goal of this program is to support local efforts to build and sustain a high quality of life in rural America.

Each spring, FRS begin accepting applications for the current year’s grant process. The application window closes in mid-September and awardees are announced in early December.

Grant projects vary but are concentrated in four major areas including business, community and economic development, education, and applications of telecommunications. For more information, see below.
