Rural Business Program

Texas Rural Challenge


The Rural Business Program is a specialty center affiliated with the University of Texas San Antonio's South-West Texas Border Small Business Development Center Network.  The focus of the program is to service rural communities in the network area that are principally agricultural based.

Today, rural communities are dealing with job loss, population loss, declining tax base, and loss of youth impacting the potential for future leadership and innovation.

Our focus is to help reverse these trends by providing rural communities and small to medium-sized businesses with technical assistance to help them grow, develop and create new jobs.
