Welcome From USDA Rural Development
State Director, Vernita F. Dore

Welcome to the USDA Rural Development Web Site for South Carolina. USDA Rural Development's mission is to improve the quality of life for rural Americans. To accomplish this, we provide Federal assistance in rural areas of our great state. It is our goal to ensure that rural citizens participate fully in the global economy. Working closely with profit and non-profit sectors, along with state, tribal and local governments, we are fundamentally changing the way in which the Federal government does business. With this new philosophy of public-private partnerships, many positive outcomes for rural Americans are occurring daily. Rural Development is committed to the future of rural communities and whatever your community needs are, from infrastructure to houses, to businesses, I want to assure you that my staff and I stand ready to help you.
