The BDCC is ready to help your project get closer to a reality. Preparing projects for funding can be a complicated process – we have some resources that can help. The BDCC Community Facilities Technical Assistance Program is designed to help qualified projects and applicants with project development and management, and with becoming successful applicants to the USDA Community Facilities Direct Loan & Grant Programs.

First, let’s determine if the project is considered a community facility.

Examples of essential community facilities include:

  • Health care facilities such as hospitals, medical clinics, dental clinics, nursing homes or assisted living facilities
  • Public facilities such as town halls, courthouses, airport hangars or street improvements
  • Community support services such as child care centers, community centers, fairgrounds or transitional housing
  • Public safety services such as fire departments, police stations, prisons, police vehicles, fire trucks, public works vehicles or equipment
  • Educational services such as museums, libraries or private schools
  • Utility services such as telemedicine or distance learning equipment
  • Local food systems such as community gardens, food pantries, community kitchens, food banks, food hubs or greenhouses

How may funds be used?
Funds can be used to purchase, construct, and / or improve essential community facilities, purchase equipment and pay related project expenses.
