"What, loan assistance from the Department of Agriculture? Seriously??? I thought they only cared about the citrus crop and strawberries and stuff."
No, the USDA oversees and is a part of a wide range of agricultural topics including RURAL DEVELOPMENT and URBAN SPRAWL. According to the USDA, Rural Development (RD) is committed to helping improve the economy and quality of life in all of rural America by providing financial programs to support essential public facilities and services as water and sewer systems, housing, health clinics, emergency service facilities and electric and telephone service. Rural Development promotes economic development by providing loans to businesses and home owners to be, through banks and community-managed lending pools, while also assisting communities to participate in community empowerment programs. RD helps rural areas to develop and grow by offering Federal assistance that improves quality of life. RD targets communities in need and then empowers them with financial and technical resources.
USDA Rural Development forges partnerships with rural communities, funding projects that bring housing, community facilities, business guarantees, utilities and other services to rural America. USDA provides technical assistance and financial backing for rural businesses and cooperatives to create quality jobs in rural areas. Rural Development promotes the President's National Energy Policy and ultimately the nation's energy security by engaging the entrepreneurial spirit of rural America in the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency improvements.
