REAP Organizing 2005-2006

Two new REAP Rural Business Roundtables have been formed since 2005. The new roundtables were formed at Madison and Schuyler. One other new roundtable is currently in the formation process at Crete, with several other communities in the beginning stages of formation.

REAP services are available on a statewide-rural basis through both individual and group formats. Through the Center for Rural Affairs’ REAP program, communities and individuals can obtain business training, networking, small loans, loan packaging assistance, and one-on-one technical assistance.
