USDA launches resource guide to help America’s rural workforce build back better.

June 10, 2021

United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development Justin Maxson unveiled a resource guide to help rural community leaders start and expand employment opportunities and access resources to train, recruit, and create a sustainable rural workforce.

The resource guide outlines programs and services available at USDA and other federal agencies that support workforce development in rural communities. It helps community leaders and other local entities access resources more easily to create jobs, train talent, expand educational opportunities, and provide technical assistance.

The guide also features examples of how customers have used USDA programs to support each assistance type. It includes recommendations on how rural leaders can replicate this assistance in their communities.

Four Bands is pleased to be featured on page 7 of the resource guide, and appreciates our long-standing partnership with USDA.
