State Director's Welcome

Patty A. Clark

Welcome to USDA Rural Development, Kansas.  Rural America encompasses 80 percent of the nation's land area and is home to about 20 percent of its people.  Partnering with others to create new opportunities for these 40 million or so rural Americans is the goal of USDA Rural Development.  A good job to go to in the morning; a well-built, safe home with reliable water, electric and telecommunications services to return to in the evening; life in a rural community with good schools, quality health services, dependable police and fire protection and an up-to-date library - this is what USDA Rural Development is all about. 

The Agency provides financial and technical assistance, which have significant impact in our rural communities.  This assistance ensures that more rural residents are able to buy their own homes, more senior citizens have safe and affordable places to live, municipalities have a partner to fund critical infrastructure projects such as water and sewer systems, rural citizens have newer emergency equipment for fire and ambulance service and more businesses are created or sustained to help ensure the availability of jobs in our rural areas.

Each day we work hard to fulfill the mission of our Agency "to improve the quality of life for and enhance economic opportunities of rural Americans." 

This web site serves to communicate the achievements, partnerships with rural communities, and investments in Kansas, by USDA Rural Development.  As State Director, I welcome your perusal of this information.  If you are unfamiliar with USDA Rural Development, these pages will provide information as to identity and purpose.
