Title: ●Rural Microentrepreneur Assistance Program 

Rural Microentrepreneur Assistance Program (RMAP) was authorized by section 379E of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act (ConAct). This Act established the RMAP to provide loans and grants to support microentrepreneurs in the development and ongoing success of rural microenterprises. The loans establish or augment a rural microentrepreneur revolving loan fund and the grants provide technical assistance and training to microenterprises.

Rural Business-Cooperative Service (RBS) will amend the current regulation by making changes designed to make the program run more efficiently, allow a more user-friendly program, bring the rules in line with other RBS programs and align the regulations to the new 2018 Farm Bill provisions under section 6422.
