USDA Rural Development

Air Date:
Heard On Route 51

We take a look at the impact the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development program is having on North Central Wisconsin. $558 million dollars was invested in rural Wisconsin communities last year, in job creation, alternative energy development, regional food systems, and building and maintaining water, sewer, electric, telephone and broadband infrastructure. Guests will include Stan Gruszynski, Wisconsin Rural Development State Director, and Mary Patoka, President and CEO of CAP Services of Stevens Point, which will be using Rural Development funds for economic development and job creation. The show will also focus on the Rural Development program’s work with tribal governments.
