Rural Development (RD)

The Distance Learning and Telemedicine program helps rural communities use the unique capabilities of telecommunications to connect to each other and to the world, overcoming the effects of remoteness and low population density. For example, this program can link teachers and medical service providers in one area to students and patients in another.


Federally-recognized tribes can directly apply.

Climate Change Component

Climate change will affect rural infrastructure and this program provides assistance to rural teachers and educational institutions to participate in and conduct distance learning and for doctors and rural health providers to conduct telemedicine.
