The Obama Administration just released a report on efforts toward rural development. An excerpt from “STRENGTHENING THE RURAL ECONOMY”:
Rural areas are home to about 50 million Americans and are an essential
part of the overall economy. This report surveys the current state of rural
America and describes the Obama Administration’s policies for strengthening the
rural economy. Many of these policies are already being implemented through the
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. But further work remains to
ensure the prosperity and vitality of rural America.
