By definition, "rural area" means any area not within either a metropolitan statistical area or the outer boundary of any city or town having a population of 20,000 or more. If your investment is in a rural area, the amount of the investment required is reduced to $500,000. The business does not necessarily have to be a farm; it can be any business that can create 10 full-time jobs. If you purchase an existing farm or other business that is located in a rural area, you still need to create ten new jobs, in addition to the jobs already existing before your investment.
