Overview of USDA Rural Development Programs and Services: USDA Rural Development will share information on programs providing assistance to Rural Businesses with our portfolio of more than 40 different loan and grant programs offered through USDA Rural Development. Specifically, we will be focusing in on our Business and Industry Guarantee Loan Program, our Rural Energy For America Program Loans and Grants, and our Value-Added Producer Grants during this session. Overview of SBA Programs and Services: This class will also cover the programs and services the Small Business Administration (SBA) offers to help start and grow a business in Rural Florida. Although the SBA is usually associated with loans, this overview will run through the SBA Loan Programs as well as our other programs and services including Counseling, Export Assistance, Government Contracting, SuretyBonds, and Disaster Assistance.
