USDA Seeks Rural Development Projects

Rural development is currently one of the most important issues for the United States Department of Agriculture. With the improvement of rural living, more jobs can be created to boost not only the agriculture industry, but the overall economy as well.
The USDA is currently seeking proposals from producers in Nebraska for development projects to receive loans or funding through various programs.
Any interested producers should complete a business proposal and send it to their local USDA county office. The proposal should include details as to how the project or expansion will help the local rural communities.
USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack notes the projects should promote business expansion and entrepreneurship in rural areas.
Projects will be selected based on economic need as well as community importance. Contact your local USDA or FSA office for more information and assistance with your proposal.
Applications for the third quarter are due March 31, 2011 while those for the fourth quarter are due June 30, 2011.
