USDA assistance tool for rural communities

April 17, 2020

We want to make sure that our legislators in the Northeast region are aware of a new tool for your rural constituents affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has introduced a COVID-19 Federal Rural Resource Guide that lists resources to provide immediate and long-term assistance to rural communities.

The guide lists resources to support recovery efforts for rural residents, businesses, and communities in:

  • technical/training/management
  • financial assistance, and
  • state and local programs

The tool can be found here, and additional information from USDA on the coronavirus can be found here.
