National Farm Bill of 2018

The Bill enhances USDA Rural Development’s (RD) ability to support and promote rural prosperity. Title VI provides assistance to rural communities for improving rural health outcomes, particularly in the areas of rural broadband; community and economic development program planning, coordination, and implementation; water and waste disposal and wastewater treatment facilities; as well as rural energy, electrification and cybersecurity. RD stakeholders will also find benefit from Title X (Energy) and Title XII (Misc). The 2018 Farm Bill impacts delivery and management of these critical programs and provides guidance and some funding for the agencies’ efforts.
