USDA to conduct outreach meetings in rural Nevada


USDA agencies are joining together to conduct public meetings to reach customers in the most rural areas of Nevada. Anyone interested in learning about USDA programs is invited.


USDA agencies have loan, cost share and technical services in the areas of agricultural production, affordable housing, community infrastructure and business development.


Sarah Adler, Nevada state director for USDA Rural Development, said the meetings are aimed at providing targeted, collaborative outreach to rural Nevadans.  “We’re reaching out to Tribal entities, producers, small businesses, new and prospective homeowners, community leaders, basically anyone who would like to learn more about USDA services or who already receives assistance from USDA,” said Adler. “Our goal is to assist in building thriving producers, businesses and communities throughout rural Nevada.”


The first meeting will be held in Round Mountain, May 3, beginning at 1:00 pm, at the Round Mountain Public Library.  Residents from the surrounding areas are encouraged to attend.
