USDA Invests More Than $200 Million in Electric Infrastructure Improvements in Rural States
WASHINGTON - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today celebrated the 80th anniversary of the Rural Electrification Act (REA) and announced funding to build and upgrade rural electric infrastructure in five states.
"Eighty years ago today, President Roosevelt signed the law which charged USDA to provide electric power to rural America," Vilsack said. "Today's investments continue a part of USDA's mission that has brought reliable, safe and affordable electric power to America's farms, ranches and rural communities, improved the quality of life for rural residents, increased farm productivity and made America the breadbasket to the world. Continuing to invest in rural electric infrastructure will help keep our economy strong."
