USDA Rural Development supports rural prosperity in Illinois by investing in modern infrastructure such as high-speed internet and water and waste treatment systems. We help eligible rural Illinois buy or rent affordable housing, and we can partner with you to build or improve essential community facilities such as hospitals, libraries, and schools. We boost rural economic development by funding technical assistance for small business owners and entrepreneurs, helping them design robust business plans, find new markets, and promote their goods and services. We also help eligible businesses and manufacturers expand or improve, and we support energy programs that finance renewable systems for agriculture and industry. Because so many of our employees live and work in the very communities we serve, the USDA Rural Development mission is personal to us. It’s this commitment to our neighbors that sets us apart.

USDA Rural Development recently compiled a COVID-19 Federal Rural Resource Guide for rural leaders looking for federal funding and partnership opportunities to help address this pandemic.

Rural Development has taken a number of immediate actions to help rural residents, businesses, and communities affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. We will keep our customers, partners, and stakeholders continuously updated as more actions are taken to better serve rural America. Please visit USDA Rural Development's Coronavirus Response page for the latest information and notices on how Rural Development is supporting its stakeholders.
