WASHINGTON, DC – September 12, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, Congresswoman Lois Capps (CA-23) joined nearly 100 of her bipartisan colleagues in urging the Congressional leadership to ensure continued eligibility for critical U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development program funding for over 500 rural communities nationwide, including Atascadero, Paso Robles, Morro Bay, Nipomo, and Carpinteria on the Central Coast. Specifically, the lawmakers are urging House leadership to include language to protect eligibility for Rural Development funding in the Continuing Resolution appropriations bill to be considered by Congress this month. The USDA Rural Development program supports a wide range of affordable housing, economic development, and critical infrastructure projects in rural areas through grants, loans, and technical assistance.
