Rural Development Division

The Rural Development Division assists communities in North Carolina to prepare, finance, and build capacity for economic growth in rural areas of the state.


When your rural community needs help attracting businesses, call on the Rural Economic Development Division. That’s because we provide expert advice based on a community’s specific needs and can connect you with the funding your area needs to make things happen. The Rural Economic Development Division heads up a growing number of grant programs, and we provide planning services, analysis and identification of resources needed to strengthen rural economic and community development projects.
