United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Acting State Director for Minnesota Cynthia Morales announced the department is investing $27 million to help rural America keep resources and wealth at home through job training, business expansion and technical assistance.  

“USDA’s business programs are meant to assist rural ag producers, small businesses and entrepreneurs with start-up and expansion to help create jobs and economic opportunity in rural communities,” Morales said. “Today’s investments will help support economic expansion of rural America by not only adding value but also keeping it local, like high-paying jobs, so that wealth created in rural areas stays in rural areas.”
