The RBIP regulation Specialty Programs Division (see 7 CFR part 4290) is currently in the process of drafting several revisions within the rule. These rule changes will allow a more effective program for investing in rural areas. We are also looking to align the provision of the rule with other Rural Business-Cooperative service programs. We are seeking comments on potential rule changes from the public.
