USDA Rural Development workshop: Where the money goes?

At a workshop organized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development, money and communication were decided as keys to help development in rural Fresno County and create jobs to help foster further growth.

These ideas, said USDA Rural Development director Glenda Humiston, from the Fresno County session and others all over the state will form the basis for streamlining over $1 billion of federal stimulus money.

According to the Fresno Bee, Fresno County participants said money is needed to modernize roads and infrastructure to attract new types of business to rural communities, increase job-training opportunities, and provide seed money to help fuel new business growth as well as help keep struggling business afloat.

Funds will begin to be dispersed by the end of this fiscal year.
