The Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) provides annual grants for communities served by NTCA members. The goal of their grant program is to support local efforts to build and sustain a high quality of life in rural America. Grants can range from $250 to $5000 that go back in to rural communities, every year.

Grants will be concentrated in four major areas:

  • Business Development
  • Community Development
  • Education
  • Telecommunications

FRS grants will allow rural communities to take that first step towards a project or plan that can help better the lives of those around them – whether it is smart boards in schools, a Main Street beautification project, better agricultural equipment for farms, start-up money for young entrepreneurs, or basic computer classes. These funds help rural Americans invest in their communities in meaningful ways.
