 The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA)

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009. It is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century.

Welcome to USDA Rural Development 
in Georgia.

Through our  business, housing, and community programs and initiatives, USDA Rural Development invested over $1.2 billion in Georgia's rural communities during Fiscal Year 2008. This investment has resulted in improved water and sewage services, new and improved community facilities, affordable rental housing for senior citizens and low-income families, homeownership for families, new jobs, new industries, renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, rural electric improvements, and sustainable communities. 

USDA Rural Development is dedicated to the goals of the Rural Development mission area. Helping the people of rural Georgia to develop sustainable communities and to improve their quality of life are the goals that we are striving to meet. 

We hope you will find this site to be interesting and informative. Thanks for stopping to visit! We look forward to serving you again soon.
