    Before you begin - please respond to the questions below.

    Applicant organizations need to be located in a rural area. If your answer to either question is no, then please continue with completing and submitting your application. If the answer to both questions is yes, then your organization does not meet the requirement as a "rural" entity and is not eligible for assistance under this program.
