USDA Expands Rural Partners Network to North Carolina

Five community networks have been added to the interagency program.

Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the addition of several North Carolina communities to the Rural Partners Network last week. The Rural Partners Network is a collaborative effort maintained by more than 20 agencies across President Biden’s administration that provides full-time on-the-ground federal support to rural communities. There, they work with community leaders to create and implement unique strategies to help those specific communities achieve their goals.

“Rural people make up America’s spirit and character and provide the everyday essentials our country depends on,” Secretary Vilsack said. “By expanding the Rural Partners Network, we can help these important but often overlooked communities receive their fair share of government resources to keep rural people and economies in North Carolina prepared for the future.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Vilsack as he seeks to expand the Rural Partners Network.
  • For county and community leaders as they join and access federal resources.
  • For USDA officials as they seek to support rural development.
