REAP Business Update Newsletter Archives

The REAP Business Update newsletter was published 10 times a year for REAP members until 2007. It covers information especially designed for rural entrepreneurs and small businesses. Topics include business tips, news about program developments, a calendar of small business events, and a monthly success story. Rural Business Roundtable discussion topics are included every other month. The newsletter archive goes back to 2003. (Note: We may have missed a few links here and there.
