Maxine B. Moul, Nebraska State Director of USDA Rural Development

"Nebraska communities, homeowners, and businesses have benefited from $189.million in USDA Rural Development funds in 2011. We are working towards another record breaking year in 2012 with even more Rural Development dollars and projects moving into rural areas of our state. Since USDA Rural Development became a separate agency in 1996, we have invested nearly $2 Billion in rural Nebraska. Those dollars create jobs, build infrastructure and help to keep our rural communities as places where the youth want to stay and where others want to move."-- Nebraska State Director Maxine B. Moul, USDA Rural Development.  Maxine B. Moul Biography
