Improve the Quality of Life in Rural Areas

Rural Development is committed to helping improve the economy and quality of life in all of rural America. To do this, Rural Development is working closely with the private and nonprofit sectors and with state, tribal, and local governments to fundamentally change the way government works. With this new philosophy of public partnership--this new relationship among Government, industry and communities--many positive outcomes for rural Americans are happening daily. Rural Development works to make sure that rural citizens can participate fully in the global economy--with technical assistance and programs to help rural Americans build strong economies to improve their quality of life.

Utilities Programs helped modern utilities (electricity, telephone, water and waste disposal services) come to rural America through some of the most successful government initiatives in American history. The Rural Development's Utilities Programs works with rural cooperative, non-profit associations, public bodies and for-profit utilities. It continues to carry on this tradition of helping rural communities expand and keep their technology up to date, helping to establish new and vital services such as distance learning and telemedicine. The public-private partnership which is forged between the RD's Utilities Programs and these industries results in billions of dollars in rural infrastructure development and creates thousand of jobs for the American economy.

This position is located under the Assistant Administrator for Telecommunications as a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This position is being filled based on availability of work and funds.
