"This fund represents a new approach to our support for job-creating projects across the country," said Vilsack. "usda and other agencies invest in infrastructure through a variety of federal initiatives, but our resources are finite, and there are backlogs of projects in many parts of the [country]. we know where investment opportunities exist, so we are in a position to help promote these projects among investors. with new efforts like this, we can move beyond existing programs and help encourage substantial private investment in projects that grow the economy and improve quality of life for millions of americans."
...conserve valuable farm and natural resources have completed AD-1026 forms on file at their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) office," said Vilsack. "this will ensure they remain eligible for crop insurance support."
...energy, local food, and the bioeconomy will require continued investment in rural places," says Tom Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture (USDA). "many major investors in urban centers aren't always aware of the significant investment opportunities in rural communities. if the white house rural council can help facilitate even a small portion of the enormous amount of available investment capital into rural places, we can grow key industries and create jobs in rural and urban areas from coast to coast."
