Rural America is one of the fastest-growing regions in the US, and it is often overlooked by policymakers.
For decades, it has been one of President Donald Trump’s pet projects.
Now, the Trump administration is making rural development a priority, with a range of initiatives, including a series of “Rural Jobs Summit” meetings in January.
In rural America, there are many challenges, but there is one area where the federal government is making a big difference.
“I think that is one thing that I am most proud of,” said Michelle Clements, chief operating officer for the Rural Development Policy Institute (RDPI), a Washington-based policy think tank that supports rural development.
“It is a real opportunity to bring people together to work together on policy issues.
And that is the real value of this meeting.
This is a chance for rural communities to talk about their policies, their issues, and the policies that they are most proud to support.”
A national conversation has emerged over the past few months, after Trump’s visit to the US.
This month, he announced a series, which will focus on rural development and will include a number of regional meetings.
The first, to be held on February 7, will include rural development experts, farmers and ranchers.
The second, to take place on February 10, will be hosted by the Rural Economic Development Council (REDC) and include representatives from several federal agencies and rural development organizations.
The third, to go on February 11, will also include members of the National Rural Development Center (NRDC), a partnership of the US Department of Agriculture, US Department, and US Department (USDA).
The fourth and final event, which takes place on Friday, will feature a number more representatives from the agencies.
There will also be a panel discussion, which includes the presidents of the RDPI and the NRDC.
At the heart of this discussion is the need to find a balance between economic development and rural employment.
“What is most important in rural development is economic development,” said Clements.
“And it is not about job creation.
There are so many different kinds of jobs that people can do in rural communities.
But it is important to understand how those jobs are created.”
Clements believes that many of the challenges that rural communities face stem from economic development.
She believes that the federal agencies need to step up to the plate and help local farmers and other rural-focused businesses that are facing a lack of financial resources.
“These are small businesses that could be able to expand their business, and they are often underserved by the government,” said Sheppard.
“So, the focus needs to be on how do we get those resources back to the farmers who have been hurt the most by the economic downturn, but also help them continue to grow their businesses, expand their businesses?”
Sheppard believes that federal agencies like the REDC, USDA, and USDA-ARS can play a crucial role in helping to support rural economic growth.
“The rural development community needs a lot more support,” she said.
“There is not a lot of federal government support for rural development in the rural community.”
Rural Development, which has been in existence since the 1960s, is the term for a wide range of programs designed to assist rural businesses and individuals.
The USDA and the USDA-AR aim to provide a variety of economic assistance programs to help small farmers and small businesses.
The RDPi supports economic development in rural areas through programs like the Rural Enterprise Development Program (Reed), a federal program that helps small businesses find jobs in rural settings.
The NRDC is also involved in many of these programs.
The Rural Employment Development Program is another major program, designed to support small businesses, including small farmers.
The US Department provides a wide array of other economic development programs to assist the nation’s rural communities and rural workers.
It is estimated that the total amount of money that has been spent on the rural development program in the last four years has totaled about $2.3 trillion.
These programs have helped millions of people in rural and urban communities gain access to decent-paying jobs.
However, these programs have also had their share of critics.
“When you have a large program that provides millions of dollars for an economic development program and then you find that it does not result in jobs,” said Healy, the RODC chief.
“You have got to look at how that program is being funded and how it is being used, and that is where a lot can be fixed.”
It is also the case that the RDD program has been criticized for being too large.
While some programs are large, the program is generally smaller than many of its larger counterparts.
For example, the USDA provides about $3.2 billion in economic assistance to small businesses annually.
And while many of those programs are funded by federal programs like farm subsidy, they are largely
