More than $40 million have been pumped into rural infrastructure projects in 2017, according the Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. Boosting economic growth in rural communities has been a priority for the USDA as they’ve funded 31 projects that will benefit nearly 265,000 residents.

“USDA is focused on improving rural America’s infrastructure,” Perdue said. “Investments such as the ones I’m highlighting today will improve the quality of life, create jobs, grow our economy and foster prosperity in rural areas.”
