Administration to Invest $74 Million to Advance Rural Healthcare

$32 million will be invested to assist more than a million people in socially at-risk communities.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Under Secretary Xochitl Torres Small reported that $74 million in grants will be awarded to advance health care facilities in rural towns across the nation. It is estimated these grants will expand critical medical services in 143 rural health institutions in 37 states, Puerto Rico, and Guam. Included in these investments is $32 million to assist more than one million people in socially at-risk communities.

“USDA is committed to making sure that people, no matter where they live, have access to high-quality and reliable health care services like urgent care, primary care, and dental care,” Under Secretary Torres Small said. “Having sustainable and accessible health care infrastructure in rural areas is critical to the health and well-being of the millions of people living in small towns across the nation.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Under Secretary Torres Small as she oversees the office of Rural Development.
  • For wisdom for Secretary Vilsack to seek God’s discernment as he leads the USDA.
