(FEBRUARY 29, 2012) USDA RURAL DEVELOPMENT HOSTS TURKISH DELEGATION IN NEBRASKA

Lincoln, Nebraska, Feb 29, 2012 -- Nebraska USDA Rural Development State Director Maxine Moul and staff hosted a tour today for seven of Turkey’s rural development experts from the Hatay province, including the Governor of Hatay and the head of its rural development agency. The delegation met with top staff at USDA Rural Development in Washington, DC earlier in the week.

The delegation is seeking to learn about American rural development policy and programs and to obtain new ideas about successful rural development programs and funding.

“This is a great opportunity for us at USDA Rural Development,” said Moul. “To be able to share what practices are working here and what is working in Turkey, puts two perspectives, goals, and best practices together bettering both countries. USDA Rural Development is pleased to share with the delegation a synopsis of our many projects funded throughout Nebraska as well as the partnerships we have built in promoting our programs and initiatives.”

The tour included Prairie Hill Learning Center in Roca, Neb.; Prairieland Dairy of Hallam, Neb.; Bell Street Apartments of Beatrice, Neb., Blue Valley Lutheran Homes Assisted Living and MetalQuest in Hebron, Neb.; Fillmore County Hospital at Geneva, Neb. and Aurora Coop at York, Neb.
