USDA Rural Housing programs provide a critical lifeline to low-income, rural families. Through low-cost loans, grants, and other assistance, USDA programs improve housing conditions and quality of life in rural America.
Before enacting the 2016 budget, lawmakers and advocates need to know more about how USDA Rural Housing programs serve rural communities. Investing in these programs provides low-income, rural Americans with access to safe, decent, and affordable housing.
How can you help?
Given the difficult economic times, it is important to build support for these programs in Congress. You can help raise awareness of rural housing issues by using NRHC’s Fact Sheets and FY16 Appropriations Chart to educate your Representatives and Senators.
