Urge your Senators to support Rural Development!

From the RCAP website: The Senate will be debating its version of the Farm Bill reauthorization over the course of this week and the next few weeks. The Rural Development Title of the bill reauthorizes a number of programs that are important to the vitality of rural America including:

  • Water and wastewater loans and grants
  • Essential community facilities loans and grants
  • Technical assistance programs to help rural communities develop sustainable infrastructure
  • Loan and grant programs for rural businesses and entrepreneurs

Please take this opportunity to let your Senators know that you support these programs and urge them to enact the Ag Committee’s version of the RD Title. With help from rural supporters like you, we can get a new Farm Bill passed before the current one expires on September 30 — one that invests in rural communities and preserves the rural way of life.
