MINNEAPOLIS - The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) has announced nearly $14 million in grants to support programs to increase prosperity in rural America through research, education, and extension programs.

The focus will be on promoting rural community development, economic growth and sustainability.

The University of Minnesota in Minneapolis was given a $498,943 grant to help study the dynamics of businesses on Indian reservations.

"Nearly 60 million Americans live in rural areas, and their value and impact through the agriculture industry can be felt both domestically and internationally," said Sonny Ramaswamy, NIFA director. "To help these communities remain prosperous and viable, we need to support discovery of new ways that promote economic viability among producers, small businesses and communities in rural America."
