I. THE ACT


PURPOSE OF TIE RURAL DEVELOPMENT ACT
In the 1970 farm bill, Congress said in title IX, "The Congress
commits itself to a sound balance between rural and urban America.
The Congress considers this balance so essential to the peace, pros-
perity and welfare of all our citizens that the highest priority must
be given to the revitalization and development of rural areas."
In support of this commitment the Rural Development Act of 1972
was passed by Congress in August 1972 and signed by the President
on August 30, 1972.
The overall purpose of the Act is "to provide for improving the
economy and living conditions in rural America."
HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE OF RURAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS 1
Throughout the history of the United States, numerous public poli-
cies and programs have been directed toward increasing the growth
and development of rural areas.
A small rural development program was inaugurated in the 1950's
during the Eisenhower administration.
In 1961 after many years of congressional debate, an Area Rede-
velopment Act was passed by the Congress and approved by the
President. This act, to be administered by the Department of Com-
merce, provided for loans, grants, and other financial assistance for
areas characterized by substantial and persistent underemployment.
Many of these areas were rural.
In the Department of Agriculture, during the same 12-month
period, a rural areas development program was established. It assisted
State. and local agencies in responding to the opportunities offered
citizens in rural areas by the Area Redevelopment Act. It also stimu-
lated agencies within the Department of Agriculture to become more
active in aiding local groups and agencies of government to take steps
that would expand job opportunities and incomes in rural areas.
Legislation in the 1960's expanded the "farm" housing program of
the Farmers Home Administration into a "rural" housing program
and gave this Gove-rnment farm credit agency authority to make loans
and grants for water distribution and sewage disposal systems to serve
rural areas.
Other new laws and amendments in the 1960's expanded the Area
Redevelopment Act into the Economic Development and Accelerated
'Abstracted from a report prepared for the Subcommittee on Rural Development
Committee on Agriculture and Forestry of the United States Senate: By Walter Wilcox.

PiuIlie Yorks Act which authorized Regional Development Commis-
'ions. New laws also gave the Departments of Labor, Hos(ing and
Urban Development, Health, Education, and Welfare, and t he
Environmental Protection Agency broadened authorities for dealing
with problems in the fields of education, skill training, housing, health,
)ollution, and underemployment. all vital to rural development.
Rural Area Development Committees were organized in all counties.
Farmers Home Administration personnel in the Department of Agi-
culture assumed the leadership of these committees including repre-
sentatives of the, major agencies in the Department plus State and
local officials in the Kennedy-Johnson administrations. The leadership
of these committees was transferred to the extension service under the
Nixon administration.
Dissatisfied with the slow rate of progress in solving rural develop-
ment problems. congressional leaders added a section to the Agricul-
tural Act of 1970 which stated:
The Congress commits itself to a sound balance between rural and urban
America. The Congress considers this balance so essential to peace, prosperity,
and welfare of all our citizens that highest priority must be given to the revital-
ization and development of rural areas.
In 1971 President Nixon proposed a system of special revenue-
sharing for rural community development, but in lieu of that proposal
Congress passed the Rural Development Act of 1972. This Act on-
sits of six titles, each of which expands and strengthens the authori-
ties and responsibilities of the Department of Agriculture.
BRiIvF SU-MMAfARY OF 'MAJOR PROVISIONS OF THE RURAL DEVELOP-MENT
ACT OF 1972
1. Broadens the definition of "rural areas" to include all territory
of the United States other than thai within cities of 50,000 or more
and their suburbs for purposes of eligibility for industrial and busi-
ness loans and grants, and establishing first priority for location of
offices and installations: and to include all the territory of the United
States other than that within cities in excess of 10,000 for purpose of
elI igibilitv for all other program s under the Act, except that these defi-
nitions do not limit the geographic location where the expanded and
new programs for resource conservation and development and water-
shed projects and of rural development and small farm extension and
research and environmental cost sharing my be undertaken.
2. Expands existing rural water, sewer, and solid waste disposal
loan program to include all other essential community facilities,
including fire houses and neighborhood and community centers.
Increases annual authorization for the planning and construction
grants for rural community water, sewer, and solid waste disposal
sVstem s (to $30 million and $300 million respectively).
4. Requires FmIA in making water, sewer, and waste disposal
facility loans or grants to give preference to communities of 5,500 or
less whose existing system has deteriorated.
5. Provides loans and grants to public bodies for development, con-
struction, or acquisition of land, buildings, plants, equipment, access
streets and roads, parking areas, utility extensions, necessary water







supply and waste disposal facilities, refinancing, services, an f(ees
involved in measures designed to facilitate development of private
business and industrial enterprises.
6. Removes ceiling limitation on size of loan or indebtedness for
publie bodies and other applicants for community facility, recreation.
land and water development, use, and conservation loans under
Farmers Home Administration Act.
7. Establishes a new guaranteed rural housing loan program that
does not require that applicant be turned down for credit from other
SOlrces.
S. Authorizes Federal cost-sharing and insured loans to local spon-
sors of small watershed (P.L. 566) projects to provide needed current
and future municipal and industrial water supplies, including to meet
fire protection needs. Also includes cost-sharing and loans for ground-
water recharge, water quality management and for conservation and1
proper utilization of land as well as water.
9. Provides similar expansion of technical and cost-sharing assist-
ance to local sponsors of RC&D projects under the Bankhead-Jones
Act for rural community water supply, water quality management
control and abatement of agriculture-related pollution, and disposal
of solid wastes and rural fire protection purposes.
10. Provides a three-year pilot program under which the U.S. For-
est Service, working through State forestry departments, will provide
cost-sharing funds and technical assistance to help rural communities
to develop and expand their fire fighting capabilities to protect homes,
industries, recreational developments, factories, and other businesses
and farmers from uncontrolled fires.
11. Authorizes loans and grants to public bodies for control. and
abatement of pollution in connection with facilitating private indus-
trial, agricultural, and business enterprises.
12. Expands list of "eligible public body applicants" qualified to
receive financial assistance under the Act to include Indian tribes and
federally recognized Indian tribal groups.
13. Increases the maximum size of individual FmITA farm and busi-
ness operating loans to 50,000 and provides that such loans may be
made on an "'insured" or "guaranteed" basis.
14. Permits applicants seeking loans to acquire. expand or operate
farms or industrial or business enterprises to obtain such loans based
upon the "current market value" of their assets instead of "normal
value". This would mean that borrowers could obtain virtually 100
percent facility loans.
15. Provides farm and business enterprise operating credit under
the FmHA Act to farm and other rural youths in connection with
youth organization activities.
16. Authorizes FmnIA to make loans to farmers for the purpose of
complying with the requirements of the Occupational Safety and
ITealth Act of 1970.
17. Desertland entrymen are accorded the same consideration as
homestead entrymen with respect to financial assistance from FmIA
which is authorized to accept desertland as security prior to a final
patent for FmItA loans.







1k. A program of long-term (up to ten years) contracts similar to
the Great Plains Conservation Program is made available to all farm-
ers and other land ov:ne- or operators in small watershed protection
J)roject areas (P.L. 56G) and throughout the United States. Plans
wnder such contracts woioldli have to be prepared in cooperation with
and approved by soil and water conservation districts.
19. Farmers and ranchers are made eligible for REAP (ACP) type
cost-sharim payments for agriculturally related water, air and noise
pollution abatement and prevention measures on rural land.
20. Authorizes FmiHA to make loans and grants for the acquisition,
expansion or operation of business and industrial enterprises (large
or small-private or public-profit or nonprofit), and to facilitate
the development of such enterprises through industrial parks, pollu-
tion control, access streets and roads, water and utility extensions and
similar industrial requirements. However, loans and grants made for
such purposes cannot be made which might result in pirating busi-
nesses or jobs from one area to another or which will result in adding
capacity to an industry within an area when an excess or unused ca-
pacity already exists for that type of industry within that area.
Such loans may be advanced for any business or industrial purpose
or for community facility -type supporting systems or installations, in-
cliding the acquisition, development, construction, rehabilitation, re-
financing, and improvement of real estate and buildings, equipment,
working capital, and production expenses as well as service fees. Such
grants are available to public bodies for both pollution abatement and
facility-type projects; to private individuals and firms and non-profit
associations for pollution abatement.
21. Extends eligibility for industrial and business loans to coop-
eratives and other non-profit private associations for any business
purpose.
22 Provides that existing 5 percent maximum interest rate shall
be applied to all FmiTA long-term farm and community facility; and
other real estate. However. the new long-term business and industrial
real estate loans to private individuals and firms are to be at a rate
(eterminined by the Secretaries of Agriculture and Treasury, based
upon a prescribed formula. When business loans made by a private
lender are guaranteed by FmHA. the interest rate is determined by an
agreement between the borrower and the lender.
23. Sets up new program of long and short term loans to rural
residents to establish small business enterprises to enable them to earn
essential income.
242. Farm, business, industrial, and community facility loans au-
thorized un(ler the amended Farmers Home Administration Act may
be made on a direct. insured, or guaranteed basis; however, (a) the
guaranteed creditor must accept 10 percent of the risk on a guaranteed
loan, with FmIIA assuming only 90 percent; and (b) the applicant
must first attempt to obtain a guaranteed loan before being eligible
for an insured or direct loan.
PS. Increases the authorized level of loans that may be held by the
Agricultural Credit In urance Fund to '300 million and relieves this
fund of existing non-farm rural development funding obligations.







(Such obligations will be handled through new iRural I)2veioplent,
Credit Insurance Fund.) Existing authorization for AIF to niale
intere ;t rate subsidies is continued.
26. Establishes a new Rural Development Credit Insurance, Fund
for the purpose of making and insuring non-farm rural develo)ment
loans. No ceiling on amount of loans that may be held is established
for the RDCI fund. Interest rate subsidies may also be made out of
this fund.
27. Provides for joint financial participation by Faili with re-pwct
to loans and grants made through other Federal, State, local, and
private financial institutions and governmental departments and a en-
cies, such as Small Business Administration, Farm Credit Adminis-
tration, Economic Development Administration, HUID, EPA, State
and local governmental as well as private financial institutions.
28. Tightens up requirements of 1970 Agricultural Act relating to
the locating of offices and facilities in rural areas. Requires that Exec-
utive Branch give "highest priority" to rural areas in locating such
facilities.
29. Requires that purposes for which loans and grants are made for
community facilities shall not be inconsistent with State. substate, and
local government comprehensive rural development plans and pro-
vides that they be reimbursed for the costs of making the necessary
reviews of project applications.
30. Provides for $10 million authorization in grants for the prep-
aration of general purpose rural development plans.
31. Requires the Secretary of Agriculture to carry out a ]and inven-
tory and monitoring program to include, but not to be limited to,
studies and surveys covering erosion and sediment damages, flood
plain identification and utilization, land use changes, and trends and
degradation of the environment resulting from improper use of soil,
water and related resources.
32. Provides for the establishment of a new nationwide research and
extension program to support rural development and to help small
farmers through cooperatives and in marketing of their products and
in the management and operation of their farming enterprises. This
new program will be administered by the Secretary of Agriculture in
cooperation with the presidents of State Land Grant Coiiege and in-
volves all other private and public institutions of technical or higher
education. (Land Grant Colleges of 1890 and professional schools of
engineering are specifically cited as playing a major role in this
program.)
33. Amends the organic act of the Department of Agriculture to (a)
add "rural development" as its basic mission; (b) require the Secre-
tary of Agriculture to formulate national goals for rural development
and report annually on progress in attaining them; and (c) requires
the Department of Agriculture to initiate programs of research in
rural housing, water supply, sewage and'solid waste management, and
rural industrialization.
34. Gives the Secretary of Agriculture primary responsibility for
rural development within the Executive Branch which includes advis-
ing the President, members of the Cabinet, and the Congress regard-





6

ing such matters. The Secretary of Agriculture also is given
authority to call upon and coordinate the programs and activities of
q// Executive Branch departments and agencies within rural areas
relating to rural development or that are designed to improve the
quality of life of the people living in noninetropolitan America.
5. Provides for a new or additional Assistant Secretary position
within 1VSDA, such position to be utilized to strengthen and empha-
size rural development within that Department.












II. IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ACT


Implementation of the Rural Development Act has been conpli-
cated by the fact that the administration sought, a different type of
rural policy. In 1971, President Nixon called for the adoption of
special revenue sharing for rural community development "with the
discretion on how [the Federal money] will be. used strictly a
State and local matter." I At the same time, the President )ropose(
legislation that would have merged seven departments and several
agencies into four major departments. The Department of Agriculture
would have been disbanded and its functions relating to rural (evel-
opment were to be incorporated into a new Department of Commnunity
Development.
The Congress considered these proposals but declined to adopt them.
The Rural Development Act of 197"2 calls for a national policy on rural
development under Federal leadership, not 50 or more unrelated and
potentially contradictory policies of State governments. It adds new
specific forms of assistance such as community facilities loans and
guaranteed private business loans rather than giving the States Fed-
eral dollars to be dispensed at each State's discretion.
The President took note of these differences when the bill came be-
fore him after enactment by the Congress. He reiterated his preference
for rural revenue sharing "to provide additional financial resources
to State and local governments without counterproductive Federal
strings attached." And for "new loan authority for commercial, indus-
trial, and community development under a credit-sharing system
which would allow tie States themselves to select most of the loan
recipients." 2 Despite these differences, the President signed the bill
into law on August 30, 1972.

Tinm CURTIS AM ENDiENT
Draft reg lations issued by the Department of Agriculture in June
1973 proposed to implement the Rural Development Act, in the spirit,
of President Nixon's revenue-sharing proposals. The proposed regu-
lations stated: -
Federal implementation of the act will be consistent with the President's policy
of decentralized decisioninaking and administrative responsibility to State 'Ind
local elected officials to the maximum extent practicable. Unless specified other-
wise by the State government, Federal agencies will look to the State Governors
to speak for the State government in all matters pertaining to the administration
of the act.3

More ...pecificall, the preliminary relations proposed to allocate
loan and grant funds for business and industrial development on a
forniila basis among the States but not below the State level. The
latter dctrimnatioi Would be left to the discretion of the Governors
or otller State officials.
The Congress expected that the business loans and related grants
would be processed and approved by the professionals in the Depart-
menit of lAgriculture, not by State officials. To make this clear, Senator
Curtis, joined bv six other Senators, offered an amendment to the law.
As finally adopted in section 817 of the Agriculture and Consumer
Protection Act of 1973, this amends Sec. 310B (d) of the Consolidated
Farm and Rural Development Act by adding at the end thereof the
following:
No grant or loan authorized to be made under this act shall require or be sub-
ject to the prior approval of any officer, employee, or agency of any State.
The Department of Agriculture took note of this amendment in
final regulations adopted in October 1973. The Department will not
seek prior approval by any State official of any loan or grant under
programs authorized by title I of the Rural Development Act of 1972.
But it intends to give "the fullest possible consideration to planning
and development goals and strategies at the State and multicounty
jurisdictional levels." The regulations further state that "State
designations of eligible areas will be duly considered by the Federal
Government in the determination of eligibility for loan and grant
assistance."
LEADERSHIP IN WASHINGTON
Title VI, section 603 of the Act directed the Secretary of Agricul-
ture to provide leadership and coordination within the executive
branch and assume responsibility for a nationwide rural development
program using the services of all agencies of the executive branch in
coordination with rural development programs of State and local
governments.
The Secretary is required to procure and preserve all information
ho can obtain with regard to "rural development" as well as agricul-
ture thus providing a specific statutory authorization for research
and statistics gathering (and the publication of the results of such
activity) in all phases of the broad field of rural development. The
Secretary is also specifically authorized to initiate or expand research
and development efforts related to rural water supply, rural sewage
and solid waste management, rural housing, and rural industriali-
zation.
The Secretary is also required to establish employment, income,
population, housing, and quality of community services and facilities
goals for rural development and report anually to Congress on prog-
ress toward their attainment.
Title VL section 604 of the Act authorized an additional position of
Assistant Secretary of Agriculture to give high level assistance to the
Secretary in carrying out the new responsibilities for leadership and
coordination assigned to him by the Act. In implementing this section

dated Farm and Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1922))
The objective of this loan program is to establish in rural areas
nonfarm business enterprises to supplement farm income. However,
this program has not. been fully implemented because indlidual
farmers can be assisted under the Farm Ownership Loan Program by
establishing business enterprises on their farm. The individual rural
resident can be assisted for nonfarm business loan credit under the
Business and Industrial Loan Program which has broader authoriza-
tions and larger loan limits. Rural residents who desire a Business
and Industrial loan see Sec. 118. Vor those farmers who desire to estab-
lish a business enterprise on the farm, the following program descrip-
tion applies:
Who1 may boirow?--To be eligible, an applcant mUSt-
(1) Have a farm background and, except for Veterans, have
sufficient farm experience or training needed to succeed in the
farming operation.
(2) Possess the character, industry, and ability to carry out the
farm ol)eration or the nonfarn enterprise.
(3) Manare and operate the farm or nonfarm enterprise.
(4) Be unable to obtain sufficient credit elsewhere at reasonable
rates and terms to finance his actual needs.
(5) Be a, citizen of the United States and of legal age.
(6) After the loan is made, be the owner-operator of a family
farm that will produce a substantial portion of his total income.
(7) Be ableto obtain operating capital.

Title 7, Part 1823, Subpart .1.

Secs. 105-107. Grants for Water and Waste Disposal Systems-
(Section 306(a) (2) and (3) of the Consolidated Farm and
Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1926))
a. Changes contained in the Act for this program are as follows:
(1) Increased the annual grant appropriation authorization
from $100 million to $300 million. (Section 105)
(2) Strengthened the law by requiring that all applications for
proposed water, waste disposal and other essential community
facilities be submitted for review to planning agencies in accord-
ance with OMB Circular No. A-95. It also authorizes reimburse-
ment to such agencies for the cost of required reviews of such ap-
plications. (Section 106)
(3) Broadened the authority for comprehensive water and
sewer planning grants by (a) including authorization for solid
waste plans, (b) increasing the annual authorized ceiling to $30
million from $15 million, and (c) providing for such grants to
appropriate agencies which may not have statutory authority to
prepare "official" plans. (Section 108 not implemented)
(4) Eliminated the $4 million ceiling for loans and grants for
central community water and waste disposal facilities. (Section
110)
(5) Requires that in making loans and grants for community
water and waste disposal systems, the Secretary must give priority
to (a) communities of not more than 5,500 in which an existing
water supply needs immediate action because of unanticipated
deterioration and diminution of its water supply; and (b) com-
munities of not more. than 5,500 in which an existing waste dis-
posal system is not adequate due to unanticipated occurrences.
(Section 112)
b. Program operations: The objective of this program is to help
financially needy communities which presently lack water and waste
disposal systems and which are not able to develop such facilities with
usual methods of financing. Grants reduce the overall cost of construc-
tion with the specific objective of reducing the residential user cost to a
reasonable level.
Who may receive assistance ?
Public entities such as municipalities, counties, and special purpose
districts with a population of 10,000 or less. Indian tribes on Federal
and State lands and other federally recognized Indian tribes are also
eligible.
What is the grant limitation?
Grants may not exceed 50 percent of the eligible project develop-
ment cost. Grants are made onty when and in such amounts as may be







necessary to provide services to rural families at reasonable rates.
Selection of projects to receive the grants and determination of the
amounts of such grants are based on the premise that a family may rea-
souablv be expected to expend a portion of its income for water and
wste disposal services. Specifically, FlnIJA regulations provide that
a family should expend at least one percent of its income (median in-
come for the community) for the construction of its water and sewer
system. If the debt repayment portion of the water or sewer cost ex-
ceeds one percent of the median income, the applicant is then con-
s idered for a grant in an amount necessary to reduce such cost to a
figure not lower than one percent of the median income.
JI'icie vill Xapplicants obta;n teclivical help?
Tie Farmers IHome Adninistration will assist the applicant in
making the first deterflhinations regarding engineering feasibilityv,
e(oln(11ic sOIIndiiess. cost estimates, organization, financing, nnd man-
agement matters in connection with the proposed improvements.
If financing is provided, the Farmers I[ome Administration will
make periodic inspections to see that, funds are used as agreed upon
and that construction meets approved standards.
Where anid hotw are applications Uade?
Applications may be obtained at the local county offices of the Farm-
ers tHome Administration. The county office staff will be glad to
discusss services available from the agency and explain how to prepaie
a written application. The county staff will also provide information
where the application is to be filed. If you are unable to locate the
FmHA county office, get in touch with the appropriate FmIIA State
office listed in the appendix.

Ttlc 7, Part 1823.1 to 1823..8.

Sec. 108. Water and Waste Disposal Planning Grants-(Section
306(a)(6) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development
Act (7 U.S.C. 1926))
Broadened the authority for comprehensive water and sewer plan-
nin grants by (a) increasing the annual authorized ceiling to $30
million from $15 million, (b) including authorization for solid waste
plans, and (c) providing for such grants to appropriate agencies
which may not have statutory authority to prepare "official" plans.
The comprehensive planning grant program was implemented in
fiscal year 1I966. Time progr-am was discontinued in January of 1973
when the water and waste disposal grant program was suspended. The
Farmers Itone Administration does not plan-to reinstate this program
at. the present time. It. is their opinion that water and waste disposal
-nt. funds can be more beneficial to rural communities in the actual
construction of water and waste disposal facilities. Furthermore, sev-
eral other Federal arenciesI have funds available for comprehensive
planning. It is Fntd\.LVs understanding that the Department of Ilous-
inr and UTrban Development provided $100 million in fiscal year 1974,
S100 million in fiscal year 19., and has funds available for the 1976
fiscal year. In fiscal year 1975. the Economic Development Adminis-
tration provided approximately $8 million for economic development,





15


plaiming assistance. The Environmental 1Protection Agency proviletl.
some $100 million to fund feasibillty sti(lies for providing Nvaste col-
lection and treatment facilities.

Sec. 109. Definition of Rural Areas-(Section 306(a)(7) of the
Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C.
1926))
Defines rural areas for the purposes of the Act to include open cou-
try and towns of up to 10,000 people, except that for loans and grants
for private business enterprises, includes all areas not within cities of
50.000 or larger and not within immediately adjacent urbanized1 al(l
urbanizing areas which have a population density of more than ole
hundred persons per square mile. As for the loans and grants for pri-
vate business enterprise, special consideration must be given to applica-
tions from areas other than cities having a population of more than
5_.000.
For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations,
Title 7, Part 1822.3.

Sec. 110. Repeal of Maximum Size Community Facility Loan-
(Repeal of Section 306(a)(5) of the Consolidated Farm and
Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1926))
Repealed the S1 million limitation on water and sewer loan and
grant combinations.
For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations,
Title 7, Part 1823.1 to 1823.48.
Sec. 111. Rural Development Planning Grants-(Section 306(a)
(11) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act)
Authorizes grants not to exceed $10 million annually for planning
for rural development.
The, Department of Agriculture recognizes the need for planning
assistance in rural communities. However. this section has not been
implemented because the Administration's position is that the HTIl)
701 planning grant funds can adequately serve the purpose for plan-
ning grants, since 701 funds are also available to rural communities
for comprehensive development planning.

Sec. 112. Priority for Certain Water Facility and Waste Disposal
Loans and Grants-(Section 306(a)(12) of the Consolidated
Farm and Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1926))
Requires that in making loans and grants for community water and
waste disposal systems. the Secretary of Agriculture must give prior-
ity to (a) communities of not more than 5.500 in which an existingz
water supply needs immediate action because of unanticipated de-
terioration and diminution of its water supply; and (b) communities
of not more than ,.500 in which an existing waste disposal system is
not adequate due to unanticipated occurrences.
For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations,
Title 7, Part 1823.1 to 1823.,18.







Sec. 113. Interest Rates on Rural Development Loans-(Section
307(a) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act
(7 U.S.C. 1927))
Authorized the Secretary of Agriculture to establish the interest
rates on rural development loans (other than aranteed loans, loans
to public bodies or nonprofit associations. including Indian tribes on
Federal an( State reservations and other federally recogized Indian
I ribal rups) for community facilities, or loans of a type authorized
by section 80( (a) (1) prior to its amendments by this Act. When made
other than as guaranteed loans, these loans will bear interest at the
rate I)rezcribed by the Secretary taking into consideration losses and
costs of administration but not less than a rate determined by the
Secretary of the Treasury. As for guaranteed loans for new rural
(Ievelopmnent purposes the interest rate will be such rate as is mutually
agreeable to the borrower and the lender.
For" the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations,
Title 7. Pait 1810.1.

Sec. 114. Escrow Payments-(Section 307(a) of the Consolidated
Farm and Rural Development Act)
Authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to require borrowers under
the Farm Ownership Loan program to repay taxes and insurance in
escrow.
This section has not been implemented because of administrative
problems.

Sec. 115. Agricultural Credit Insurance Fund-(Section 309(f) of
the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act) (7 US.C.
1926-1929,1966 and 1988)

can he used to provide interest rate subsidies on any insured farm
credit real estate loans where the insured creditor charges a higher
interest rate than the borrower pays; (2) for increasing the amount
of loans w hich may be held in the fund to $500 million from $100
million: (8) for transferring assets and liabilities of the Farmers
Iome Administration direct loan account and the Emergency Credit

Sec. 116. Rural Development Insurance Fund-(Section 309A(a)
of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act) (7 U.S.C.
1929,1985, and 31 U.S.C. 774)
Establishes a new revolving fund called the "Rural Development
Insurance Fund". which will be used by the Secretary for the purposes
of discharging his obligations in connection with rural development
loans. These include (1) loans locally originated and serviced by the
guaranteed holder, (2) loans made by a local lender that are processed,
insure(l and serviced by the Secretary, and (3) loans made out of the

tofore or hereafter entered into by the Secretary for water and wariCe
disposal loans under section 306 (a) (1), are backed by the Insurane
Fund and the full faith and credit of the United States.
If there should be insufficient moneys in the Insurance Fund to en-
able the Secretary to make loans, advances, and authorized expendi-
tures out of the, Insurance Fund, he is authorized to borrow from tlhe
Secretary of the Treasury to replenish the Insurance Fund. The Sc-
retarv of Treasury is authorized and directed to purchaPse notes issued
by the Secretary for such purpose, which notes would bear inteives
comparable to the cost of money to the Treasury for obligations having
maturities comparable to the notes and to tilc loans authorized to lbe
guaranteed or insured.
The Secretary is required to deposit in the Insurance Fund all fees
and ch-arges collected by him for loan services, such as expenses for
obtaining credit and property appraisal reports, and additional
charges assessed for losses and administrative costs in connection wbth

Sec. 117. Watershed and Resource Conservation and Development
Loans-(Section 310A, Subtitle A of the Consolidated Farm
and Rural Development Act) (7 U.S.C. 1922 and 16 U.S.C. 1001)
a. The Act authorized insurance of loans meeting the requirements
of the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act and Title III
of the Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act (Resource Conservation and
Development Projects).
b. Program operations:
(1) Watershed Loans- (Watershed Protection and Flood Pre-
vention Act of 1954, as amended, Section 8; 16 U.S.C. 1006a).
The objective of this program is to provide loan assistance in plan-
ning and carrying out works of improvement to protect, develop, and
utilize the land and water resources in small watersheds.
Who may receive assistance?
Eligible local organizations may include a soil or water conservation
district, irrigation district, drainage district, flood prevention or con-
trol district, municipal corporation, reservoir company or similar
organization. It must be a sponsor of the watershed work plan and
have authority under State law to obtain, give security for and raise
revenues to repay the loan and to operate and maintain the facilities
financed with the loan.
What projects are eligible ?
Loans and advances are made only to finance the local share of costs
of improvements in watershed projects approved under the Watershed
Protection and Flood Prevention Act or in connection with the 11
watershed improvement programs authorized by the Flood Control
Act of 1944. An application for a watershed loan or advance should
not be filed until after the. SCS approves the watershed for planning.
See leaflet SCS-C1- titled. "Small Watershed Projects," for a brief
outline on how to obtain aid from the Soil Conservation Service.
Ho i ?nay, loan funds be used?
Loan funds may be used:
1. To install, repair or improve facilities to:
a. Store and convey irrigation water to farms.
b. Drain farm areas.
c. Store. treat and distribute water mainly for farm household,
livestock and crop spraying purposes.
d. Stabilize annual streamflow, increase the recharge of ground
water reservoirs and conserve present water supplies.
2. For special land treatment measures, structures or equipment
installed or used by the local organization primarily, but not entirely,
for flood prevention and which produce community benefits sufficient
to justify use of taxes or other local revenues for their installation.
3. To install, repair, or improve water storage facilities for such
purposes as recreation, fish and wildlife improvement, and pollution







abatement by streamflow regulation and sale w ater intrusion eoiit vol
and to meet a municipalitys immediate or future water supply needs.
A loan for a storage reservoir for municipal water supply may iilicl(le
funds for pipelines and any necessary pumping facilities to convev
the water from the reservoir to the existing or proposed mum-icipal
treatment facilities or water system.
4. For recreational developments in or adjacent to reservoirs. lakes.
natural streams or shorelines including minimum basic facilities needed
for public health and safety, access and use.
5. For fish and wildlife developments which may include water
resource improvements and minimum basic facilities which are pri-
marily for the improvement of the environment or habitat for fish
and wildlife.
6. To buy a full or part interest in land for sites or rights-of-way
upon which works of improvement will be located: to pay associated
costs such as for the removal, relocation or replacement of brilges,
roads, railroads, pipelines, buildings and fences.
7. To repay an advance made by the SCS for the immediate pur-
chase of land and rights-of-way essential to preserve sites for works
of improvement from interference by encroachment of other
developments.
8. To acquire a water supply or a water right.
9. To employ engineers, attorneys, auditors, construction foremen
and clerks needed to organize the group, make engineering surveys.
develop construction plans. administer construction contracts and
supervise the building of works of improvement.
10. To buy equipment needed to build or install the planned works
of improvement provided it cannot be rented cheaper or that the cost
of works of improvement will be lower as a result.
11. To refinance debts of a local organization under certain
conditions.
Advances by SCS mav be used:
1. To pay the construction cost of reservoir capacity including in-
take and outlet structures for future municipal and industrial water
supply.
2. To acquire sites for authorized types of works of improvements
where immediate acquisition is essential to preserve theem from inter-
ference by other developments.
TVkat are Mre terms?
Loans are scheduled for repayment within the shortest period con-
sistent with the borrowers' abilities to repay. The repayment period
may not exceed that permitted by the applicable State law and in no
event will exceed 50 years from when the principal benefits of the
facilities become available. There must be adequate evidence that in-
come will be sufficient to meet all scheduled repayments.
Advance terms:
1. Advances to preserve sites must be fully repaid with interest prior
to beginning construction of works of improvement, on the sites thus
acquired.
2. If permitted by State law, principal repayments on advanees for
future water supply may be deferred until 1 year after water is first
used from the storage capacity installed with the advance or until the




20


end of 10 years from the scheduled completion date of the structure,
whichever occurs first.
No interest will be charged on advances for future water supp
until water is first used or the end of 10 years from the date of the
advance, whichever occurs first. Thereafter interest payments, at the
interest rate established for loans on the date of the advance, will be
scheduled at least annually. To be eligible for these terms, there must
be evidence that the local organization will use the water and can meet
scheduled installments of principal and interest.
The interest rate is the average rate paid by the U.S. Treasury on
obligations of a similar maturity outstanding at the beginning of the
fiscal year in which the watershed loan is made. Once the interest rate
is set, on a loan, it will not change during the life of that loan.
Each borrower may make prepayments in any amount at any time.
Ho? much can be borrowed or advanced?
The total amount of indebtedness for all watershed loans for any
one watershed project, whether made to one or more borrowers, shall
not exceed $5 million.
The maximum amount of any advance for reservoir capacity for
future water supply will be 30 percent of the estimated total installa-
tion cost of the structure in which capacity for future water supply
is to be provided.
The amount of an advance to acquire and preserve sites for works of
improvement may not exceed the amount determined by the SCS to be
necessary.
What security is required?
Watershed loans and advances will be secured in a manner which
will adequately protect the interests of the Government. Usually,
security that can be offered includes general obligation bonds sup-
ported by ad valorem taxes, revenue bonds secured by pledges of reve-
nue, other evidences of debt secured by special assessments or by liens
on facilities and pledges of income.
How to apply?
Each local organization desiring a watershed loan will make appli-
cation to the local county supervisor of the Farmers Home Adminis-
tration. Organizations desiring an advance will contact the Soil Con-
servation Service representative.

Rural Development Coordination Activities Under Sec. 603-
The responsibility to carry out Sec. 603 leadership and coordination
activities has been delegated to the Rural Development Service.
Agency objectives to carry out this mission are:
(1) To insure that rural communities receive an equitable share
of the available development resources.
(2) To assist rural communities to gain better access to the
available developmental resources. (Resources include financial
and technical assistance, information, and manpower.)
(3) To assist people in rural communities to become more effec-
tive in implementing the developmental process in their com-
munities.
Coordination at the national level involves the analysis of existing
and proposed Federal programs, legislation, regulations and policies
to determine if they serve the rural sector properly and equitably. If
not, RDS proposes appropriate changes and negotiates procedures to
close program gaps, resolve funding problems and improve delivery
mechanisms. RDS also assists inj.Ieveloping new or modified regula-
tions and prepares instructional materials as new or revised programs





38


Iand procedures become operational. At the state and local levels, the
RDS coordination activity consists primarily of providing program
information and technical assistance directly to local officials seeking
help in community development projects.
In the leadership programs, RDS includes the development and
dissemination of rural development information and materials, pro-
vidiii technical assistance, developing and implementing training
and education programs, serving on task forces and committees, estab-
lishing liaison with relevant organizations and groups, and articulat-
ing coals for rural development.
A fuller explanation of these and other RDS activities follows:
rROMNOTToN OF INCREASED R17RAL ORIENTATION AMONG FEDERAL PROGRAM
MANAGERS
Through personal meetings, RDS coordinators have advised 265
program managers in 36 Federal departments, independent agencies,
and commission of the Rural Development Act legislative mandate,
RDS serve ices, and the needs that rural areas have for a more equitable
share of their resources and services. In addition, coordination activi-
ties were conducted with 88 program managers in 17 USDA agencies.
Program managers have ranged from technicians and program direc-
tor to administrators and deputy assistant secretaries, all of whom
manage programs and influence policy relating to human resource
development, natural resources, community facilities, or economic
development. The objective is to-
(1) Lay the groundwork for agreements that will benefit the
rural sector.
(2) Encourage each department with major programs appli-
cable to rural needs to establish a rural development staff, action
officers, or special office for the specific purpose of increasing the
effectiveness to the individual department's efforts to assist rural
people.
The Rural Development Service also works to encourage Federal
program managers to give greater attention to rural areas through its
function of assuming the major portion of review responsibility in
the Department of new Federal legislation and regulations relating to
programs possibly affecting rural areas.

COORDINATION AGREEMENTS
The Rural Development Service's executive branch coordination
objective for FY 1976 is to effect a minimum of 10 interdepartmental
or interagency agreements that will accomplish expanded or more
efficient delivery of Federal assistance to rural areas. All such agree-
ments are cooperative. RDS initiates, helps develop, and negotiates
the agreements, but the program agencies determine their nature.
Progress toward this coordination goal is as follows:
(1) Completed agreements initiated or assisted by RDS
An agreement with the Department of Housing and Urban De-
velopment for the extension of time for preapplications for HUD's
Title I, Community Development Block Grants, General Purpose
Funds for Nonmetropolitan Areas. This agreement enabled nonmet-
ropolitan areas to have sufficient time to make preapplications for FY
1976 funds.
An agreement with the Federal Highway Administration that en-
abled USDA agencies to serve on an interdepartmental selection com-
mittee for Rural Transportation Demonstration Project applications.
This agreement allowed rural applicants to be represented by a rural
advocate.
An agreement between ITSDA and OMB, Interagency Systems
Group, naming RDS as USDA coordinator for the Joint Funding
Simplification Act. This agreement enables OMB to coordinate with
one Agency in USDA for all program activities under the Act thus
facilitating better coordination.
An agreement between Farmers Home Administration and Small
Business Administration to ensure that business loan applicants are
better served by the type of loan and loan agency best meeting their
needs. This agreement establishes procedures for cooperative referral
action.







An ageement between Farmers Home Administration and political
subdivisions or an educational, charitable, or non-profit organization
that permits employees of these groups to assist in the Administra-
tion's effort to provide agricultural, housing and other assistance for
rural people. This agreement enabled such agencies as Community
Services Administration, Community Action Agency personnel to per-
form outreach to locate applicants for low-cost housing loans and
assist in loan packaging and provide ongoing counseling to home-
owners on a gratuitous basis.
An agreement between Public Health Service and Extension Serv-
ice for the implementation of the Emergency Medical Services Sys-
tems Act of 1973. This agreement enabled dissemination of infor-
mation on grants and contracts under the Act to rural communities
through the ES county office system. ES may also provide technical
assistance to communities preparing proposals for systems to be
funded under the Act.
The Rural Development Service and Farmers Home Administra-
tion in a joint action aimed at rural health problems contracted for
rural health research to provide data and analysis for use in seeking
an increased rural health commitment from Federal departments, in-
dependent agencies and commissions. Results provide FmHIA with
needed data related to possible funding of community medical facili-
ties under Title I of the Rural Development Act. Additionally, the
study resulted in a planning outline which will assist rural communi-
ties and areas to develop improved health care systems.
(2) Agreements in final stage of completion
To implement a program that creates a delivery system for com-
mumity development and housing assistance for hard-to-reach low-
income individuals and families in many rural areas. A Joint HUD-
USDA Task Force has been established to develop a model and neces-
sary agreement. This model is being developed by the Rural Develop-
ment Service, Farmers Home Administration, Extension Service, and
the Department of Housing and Urban Development. An agreement
between USDA and HUD will combine the resources of the two agen-
cies in order to utilize existing resources more efficiently.
An agreement providing for standardization of procedures between
the Department of Agriculture and Department of Defense for Sec-
tion 608 (PL 93-552) activities for the Trident (Washington) Com-
munity Assistance Program has been drafted by USDA and DoD.
This agreement will eliminate the necessity for DoD to establish im-
plementing agreements with individual USDA agencies and would
provide a vehicle for coordination and consultation with USDA con-
cerning Section 608 funding.
(3) Agreements in process
The Rural Development Service is working with the Appalachian
Regional Commission, Health and Child Development Program, in
developing a 5-year rural health project proposal. RDS is providing
USDA coordination and comment on the project. RDS is identifying
available resources outside ARC that may be applicable to assist in
the implementation of the rural health project.
The Rural Development Service is working with the Appalachian
Regional Commission, Housing and Water Systems Program, to in-





42


tegrate ARC's Housing Impact Fund and other housing and com-
munity development programs with the USDA programs.
Rural Development Service is working with the Bureau of Com-
munity Health Service, Health Services Administration, Public
Health Service, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to
integrate the. activities of the National Health Servce Corps, the
Community Health Center Program, Migrant Health Program, and
the efforts of the Appalachian Regional Commission to develop county
and multicounty primary care system in areas with critical health
manpower shortage. Forty-seven integrated rural health primary care
sites have been selected and awarded grants. RDS is coordinating sep-
arate agreements between the participating agencies and HEW for
use of their respective resources and capabilities to assist in the imple-
mentation of the HEW Rural Health Initiative.
Rural Development Service and Department of Housing and Urban
Development are developing a study to gain first-hand empirical in-
formation regarding the growth potential and problems of rural
growth centers and to provide a framework for other small towns to
assist them in orderly growth.
In conjunction with FmHA, SBA, and EDA, the Rural Develop-
ment Service is exploring means whereby the adverse economic im-
pacts of rail abandonments can be ameliorated.
(4) Examples of areas with potential for negotiated agreements
MAajor Rural Development Service coordinators are currently work-
inY on commercially accepted standards for solar energy equipment
for rural residences and buildings; use of USDA radio communica-
tions network for medical emergencies; use of Veterans Administra-
tion facilities in rural areas by non-VA physicians on a cost sharing
basis; agreement between HEW and USDA to develop rural health
objectives; improving administration of food distribution programs
in rural areas; agreement between USDA and southern medical
schools on training and educating medical students to practice in rural
areas: agreement between HUD and USDA to use research and de-
velopment funds for use by Cooperative Extension Service personnel
in housing and community development assistance; use of Reserve
Officers during Active Duty Training for implementing rural develop-
ment projects; improving construction specifications for exterior
doors and hardware on Federal guaranteed and insured housing loans
to reduce burglaries: energy conservation project to include in the
standard construction specifications, of all Federal guaranteed or
insured housing programs, clock or spring actuated night cycles on
he:tinY Ihermostat controls; developing coordination between USDA,
hUT), and EPA on wastewater treatment grants; developing pro-
cedures to enable rural areas gain better access to HEV's housing
assistance programs; develop joint funding of projects and planning
assistance relating to law enforcement; develop firm arrangements for
making surplus real and personal government properties more avail-
able to rural communities in need: and joint funding of projects entail-
ing RDA community facilities resources and LEAA funded projects
for law enforcement facilities and equipment.







TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE TO STATES AND LOCALITIES
One of the primary reasons that rural areas have not received an
equitable share of Federal assistance is the inability of small rural
communities to gain access to resources. IRDS recognized the need for a
single source of reliable, complete, and current information on assist-
ance available for development and initiated the one-stop technical
assistance and counseling coordination service to help rural communi-
ties surmount barriers that account for this problem. These barriers
include the following: lack of working knowledge of what resources
are available; the proper governmental personnel to contact: lack of
technical expertise in planning and in preparing sound project pro-
posals; and lack of understanding of the potential for joint funding
etween different levels of government or dirttereiit Fe eral L:vencies.
RDS provides, in effect, a national rural development ombiKIdsman
service to help public officials and others gain ready access to Federal
and State resources and other services applicable to their rural devel-
opment plans and priorities. During FY 19751 con neling.- and tech-
nical coordination assistance was provided to over 1.000 communities
in helping them to better utilize government services and programs.
FEDERAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS RETRIEVAL SYSTEM (FAPRS)
FAPRS is a computerized program information system initiated
and developed by RDS with the assistance of USDA's Agricultural
Stabilization and Conservation Service to provide quick, complete,
and up-to-date retrieval of information on Federal assistance pro-
grams applicable to rural development. The system is operational in
RDS for 39 areas of aid in four major categories: community facili-
ties, housing, business and industrial development and planning as-
sistance. Additional categories will be programed into the system as
warranted by demand.
FAPRS is available for use on a cost-sharing basis by public and
private groups having compatible computer terminals. The system was
developed to assist program specialists in searching out rural develop-
ment resources and will also give local officials the opportunity for on-
site retrieval of program availability data. Access to the FAPRS serv-
ice will be made available by Federal, State, or district offices that have
a computer terminal and subscribe to the service.
Applicants need no knowledge of computers to use the system. The
computer is programmed to ask a few basic (liestions about the appli-
cant's community and to assist in answering them if necessary. Based
on this information. and the applicant's identification of the specific
category of help being sought, the computer will print out the names
of all applicable Federal assistance programs. The printout is cross-
referenced to the Cataloq of Federal Domcsf> A...,be so that the
user can refer to the Catalog for a summary description of each pro-
gram identified and sources of further information. A small fee. zen-
erally less than 05. may be char ed to applicants to compensate the
terminal office for the cost of providing the FAPIRS service.

PLANNING ASSISTANCE
RDS. in accordance with Rural Development Act regulations, pro-
vides planning review services for regional, State, and local govern-
mental or quasi-governmental organizations which have prepared
development plans. This is a courtesy review designed to help insure
the adequacy of plans developed by rural interests.
RDS is also preparing a manual, "Rural Planning Guide," for use
by rural officials and concerned citizens. The guide is designed pri-
marily for communities that do not presently have the services of a
full-time planner, expert, or staff. It will provide basic information to
enable such rural communities to develop and maintain a continuing
planning process. The guide describes the process needed to begin
planning, details the elements of a comprehensive plan, and identifies
sources of technical and financial assistance for planning.
RDS and the Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) jointly
funded a rural health study providing a conceptual model for a rural
health care delivery system and guidelines for use by FmHA program
officials evaluating proposals for the funding of health care facilities
under Title I of the Rural Development Act. RDS has circulated the
study for comments by the Department of Health, Education, and
Welfare (HEXV), private sector leaders in health care, and a number
of other groups. and. in consultation with HEW, Extension Service,
and other agencies. will prepare a local health care planning manual
based on the study.

GUIDE TO FEDERAL PROGRAMS FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT
To augment RDS' technical assistance services, RDS has published
a revised Guide to Federal Programs for Rural Derelopment. This is
a comprehensive reference catalog that serves as a directory for local
government officials to learn where, in the array of Federal program
assistance, they can seek support for their community development
priorities.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE TO COMMUNITIES AND STATES
To focus national attention on rural development and to assist vol-
unteer community leaders in the processes and techniques of develop-
ing their communities, RDS developed the National Rural Develop-
ment Leaders School (NRDLS), a demonstration project which has
provided leadership development assistance to over 550 citizen leaders
from 49 States. Five sessions of the School have been conducted and
two more will be conducted in 1976. The School model was developed
with the assistance of Extension specialists. State and Federal gov-
ernment representatives. universities, and other private sector repre-
sentatives to provide a comprehensive and coordinated approach to
rural development. Participants have been selected from multistate
areas to give local leaders the opportunity to benefit from exchanges
on rural development as an areawide process.
Rural Resources Fairs held at the week-long School sessions have
enabled School participants to meet with representatives of numerous
Federal and State government agencies providing assistance for local
development efforts.






45


in response to requests from a number of States, RDS will develop
and conduct an inservice training program based on the techniques
and methods developed and used in NRDLS. The training will be con-
ducted for State and substate governmental and private groups in-
volved in rural development and wishing to use the NRDLS tech-
niques in their own development efforts.
RDS will also package NRDLS materials for use at the State level
and will continue to help States that wish to conduct schools based on
the techniques developed for NRDLS.
With the assistance of RDS and Extension specialists, NRDLS par-
ticipants from Minnesota developed a 4-day State Rural Development
Leaders School and North Dakota participants a 3-day session. A
number of other States have indicated a desire to adopt concepts from
NRDLS, including Colorado, which the State Rural Development
Committee plans to conduct a "mini-NRDLS" in several regions with-
in the State.
The motivational value of the School is illustrated in the case of a
local banker from Iowa. After attending the School, the banker mobi-
lized Iowa State University students to survey his community's de-
velopment needs. Through use of an RDS-developed survey form
entitled "Community Report Card" plus a comprehensive question-
naire designed by the banker, the survey provided data for the Town
Council to use in deciding on development priorities. Representatives
from the town, including the banker, subsequently visited RDS in
-Washington, where a step-by-step plan of action was developed for
the town to follow to achieve its development priorities. The town has
since obtained an FmHA guaranteed loan for a senior citizens rental
housing project and is undertaking a vigorous program of community
development.
COORDINATION SERVICES TO STATES
As Secretary of the National Rural Development Committee, RDS
is liaison agency between the Committee and the State Rural Develop-
ment Committees. The State Committees, in operation in the 50 States,
Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands, are comprised of repre-
sentatives of USDA agencies, State governments, public agencies,
private groups, and, in many cases, other Federal Departments. The
Committees provide a coordinative mechanism for rural development
at the State, multicounty, and county level. County rural development
committees represent 89 percent of the Nation's counties, and local
committees represent all areas in the majority of States.
RDS regularly provides the State Committees with current infor-
mation on rural development program developments and issues, mails
out Facts on Rural Development Resources, annual rural development
reports submitted to the Congress, a rural development newsletter
issued twice monthly, and responds to special requests for liaison serv-
ices pertaining to State or areawide development conferences. In addi-
tion, RDS reviews the Committee's annual plans of work and main-
tains the USDA central depository records pertaining to the State
Committees.
REGIONAL COORDINATION SERVICES
RDS activities described throughout this report serve to link Fed-
eral, State, and local people in various ways. At the regional level,
RDS has undertaken direct linkages through Rural Development





46


Roundtables. initiated to increase the understanding and knowledge
of Federal and State program managers of their role in providing
program assistance in rural areas. Two roundtable programs have
been conducted for representatives of departments serving on the Fed-
eral Regional Councils, other departments with field offices, State gov-
ernment agencies, State offices of Federal Departments, and the
private sector.
RURAL DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The Rural Development Act of 1972 directs the Secretary of Agri-
culture to establish employment, income, population, housing, and
quality of community services and facilities goals for rural develop-
ment and to report on progress towards attainment of such goals.
RDS has prepared two of these annual reports and the third report
is currently in clearance. In preparing the third report, 25 agencies
(15 outside the Department of Agriculture and 10 within the Depart-
ment) were contacted for program information and accomplishments.
The agency is currently designing a strategy to obtain inputs from a
cross section of rural interests at the local, substate, State, multistate,
and national levels.
INFORMATION SERVICES
The Rural Development Service maintains supplies of publications
describing individual programs of USDA and other departments and
agencies with substantial resources available for rural development.
The publications are supplied to visitors and in response to written
and telephone requests for basic introductory information on Federal
rural development programs, to eliminate the need for the inquirer to
contact numerous separate agencies that all may administer programs
relevant to one specific need.
In addition to responding to numerous requests annually for basic
rural development information, the RDS information staff conducts
a wide range of information activities to publicize rural development
as a process that is critically important to the Nation. This effort in-
cludes staff-produced television and radio shows and news and feature
material for newspapers ind other publications; personal interviews
of USDA officials by media representatives concerned with promoting
rural development; suggestions for feature stories on successful com-
munity development projects and other subjects related to rural de-
velopment given to newspapers nationwide; publications, such as the
revised Gu de to Federal Programs for Rural Development, a bibli-
ography of rural development literature, and special fact sheets on
rural development resources; and visual materials, such as films,
exhibits, and a color slide show that describes how a hypothetical com-
munity uses the Rural Development Act of 1972 and other legislation
to upgrade the quality of community life.
SPECIAL NOTICES
RDS publishes Facts on Rural Development Resources as a means
of quickly informing rural communities of newly available rural
development resources. especially resources from programs that have
a short application period. Examples include fact sheets on the Rural
Highway Public Transportation Demonstration Program, the Hous-





47


ing and Community Development Act's community development
block grants, the HUD community development discretionary grants;
and the rural community fire protection program under Title IV of
the Rural Development Act.
The fact sheets usually are distributed for RDS by FmHA and the
Extension Service, who supply copies to their State and county offices
for redistribution to appropriate local groups, and by the Rural Elec-
trification Administration. In addition, RDS supplies copies to mem-
bers of the Federal Regional Councils and to the 53 State Rural De-
velopment Committees. RDS also publicizes the fact sheets via news-
papers and radio announcements.

Sec. 601. Additional Assistant Secretary of Agriculture-
(Section 5315(11) of Title 5, U.S.C.)
Authorized an additional position of Assistant Secretary of Agri-
culture to give high level assistance to the Secretary in carrying out
the new responsibilities for leadership and coordination assigned to
him by section 603: to add emphasis to rural development; and to
strengthen and broaden rural development efforts of the Department
of Agriculture.

Sec. 605. Long-Term Rural Environmental Protection Con-
tracts-(Subsection B of Section 8 of the Soil Conservation
and Domestic Allotment Act (16 U.S.C. 590a))
Provides authority for the Secretary to enter into multiyear (not
to exceed a period of 10 years), as well as annual, cost-share agree-
ments with agricultural producers.
A program offering $190 million in cost-sharing assistance has been
available to agricultural producers in 1975 for carrying out conserva-
tion environmental improvement and forestry practices. It is anti-
cipated that. a program will be available in 1976. Producers will be
informed by letter and news media of the practices available when
the 1976 program is ready for operation. Under these programs, the
producer files a request for cost-share assistance with the county
ASCS office. The county ASC committee reviews and acts on the
request according to program rules and regulations. The Soil Con-
servation Service (SCS) provides technical assistance on practices
requiring structural or engineering work. The Forest Service pro-
vides technical assistance on forestry practices. The county ASC com-
mittee reimburses the producer for a percentage of the cost of estab-
lishing the practice. from 50 to 75 percent of the cost.
For multivear agreements, the request is referred to SCS for de-
velopinc with the producer the necessarv conservation farm plan.
Then. based on the conservation farm plan approved by the local Soil
Conservation District, the county ASC committee and producer will
complete and sign the agreement. The agreement will show the prac-
tices to be cost-shared and the schedule of years for their establish-
nent. The producer is then paid his cost-share assistance based on the
practices performed each year under the agreement.
