2017 Annual Report

The Western Rural Development Center's 2017 Annual Report includes highlights from theyear along with a message from Executive Director Don E. Albrecht.
From the Director: "I have deep roots in rural America. I grew up on a farm in a small and isolated rural community where the nearest doctor was over 50 miles away. After leaving the farm, I have spent my entire professional career seeking to understand rural America and suggesting programs and policies to address the problems and concerns of rural residents. I often tell people that I have the best job in the world."
