The Trump administration has announced an investment of $153 million in America’s rural regions, with a particular focus on small and low-income communities.
The funds will be disseminated through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and are expected to benefit nearly two million rural Americans, the agency said in a statement on Wednesday.
Through a combination of low-interest loans and grants, which may be combined with commercial financing, the money will be used to improve critical community facilities in 23 states.
“Rural America needs safe, modern infrastructure to help residents and businesses achieve greater prosperity and have access to essential services,” USDA Deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development Bette Brand said.
