#RuralMade Across the Country

Since 2009, the Obama Administration has made targeted investments to help rural businesses grow. The U.S Department of Agriculture has been making record-breaking investments in affordable housing, energy efficiency, roads and bridges, and internet access as well as loans and grants for rural businesses in all fifty states. These investments enable businesses and families to call America's rural areas "home".

As part of our commitment to strengthening rural economies, USDA announced a new state-by-state "Made in Rural America" report illustrating the impact of USDA investments in rural communities. Each state factsheet is a snapshot of specific USDA investments in rural businesses, manufacturing, energy, water and other infrastructure development. They also outline how USDA is building strong rural communities that are attractive places for businesses and families to locate by investing in housing and broadband.
