On January 12 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET, the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development will host an informational webinar on USDA's new Strategic Economic and Community Development (SECD) program.

Established under the 2014 Farm Bill (P.L. 113-79), the SECD program allows USDA-RD to reserve up to 10 percent of funding appropriated to specific programs until June 30 of each fiscal year to fund projects that support the implementation of strategic economic and community development plans across multi-jurisdictional areas. The four Rural Development programs under the program include: Community Facilities, Water and Environmental Programs, Rural Business Development Grants, and Business and Industry Guaranteed Loans. The SECD program went into effect this past June and funds will be accessible during fiscal year (FY) 2016.

This timely webinar will provide an overview of the SECD program, how to apply for funding, and will include an in-depth question and answer session at the end. This webinar is free of charge and a recording will be made available to registrants afterward.
