The Rural Grants/Programs Section administers the Rural Building Reuse, Infrastructure and Demolition grant programs. These programs provide local governments with funds for critical infrastructure, building improvements, and demolition that will lead to the creation of new, full-time jobs. Please review our program information pages for additional details. 
 
This Section also manages the State appropriated grants transitioned from the NC Rural Economic Development Center. In November of 2013, nearly 510 active projects were transferred to the NC Department of Commerce.
