REAP GRANT PROGRAM
Grant Gives Small Communities Opportunity to Improve their Infrastructure & Quality of Life
The Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP) is essential to providing communities, with populations under 7,000 the opportunities to improve their infrastructure and quality of life. The FY 2022 REAP Grant Application is available to download beginning July 1, 2021. The grant deadline is September 30, 2021 at 4 p.m.
REAP grants require no match and may fund projects such as road and street construction or repair, drainage projects, rural highway improvements, county bridge construction or repair, industrial access road construction or repair, among other specific transportation projects.
REAP grants may include improvements in rural water quality, rural solid waste disposal or treatment, rural sanitary sewer construction or upgrades, provision of rural health care services (including emergency medical care), telecommunications improvements, projects that increase employment levels, and municipal energy distribution system improvements.
Through an online tutorial, communities receive assistance in the development of projects and grant applications. Project applications are reviewed by an advisory committee then approved by the ACOG Board of Directors.
