    Description:

    Part of the Iowa Farm Bureau, Renew Rural Iowa is designed to help increase the enterprise value of new and existing businesses in Iowa's small towns through a program of business education, mentoring, and the financial resources. Rural Vitality Fund (RVF) was created as a part of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation in partnership with other leading organizations including Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, CIPCO, and the Iowa Agriculture Finance Corporation who are committed to supporting the financing needs of Iowa's rural businesses. These funds are intended for formal companies (LLCs and C-corps are preferred) which are in early or growth stages of development. Over the three to five year life of the investment, the total contribution to any one company should be less than $1 million. However, additional funding may be negotiated directly through the Iowa Farm Bureau.
