|Don't give up searching for resources in the meantime! There is usually some local raw food goldmine, the trick is finding it. Co-ops, meat markets, local butchers, hunters, Craigslist and Freecycle can all be excellent resources for cheap or free meat.
You may also be able to place orders from premade dealers - Bravo, for example, sells whole chicken, turkey and duck necks, buffalo tails and necks, beef necks, hearts, and more. I recently ordered a 30 lb case of duck necks and a 20 lb case of buffalo tails. Together they averaged $1.45 lb. Which is really cheap for any meat in this area.
Buying in bulk is key, although it can be difficult to do so when you're starting out.
You can also feed part raw, offering a kibble meal and a raw meal every day, or alternating days if you feed once a day. It keeps costs down and gives you both time to adjust to raw.
