Responses and Recommendations for the New Rural Task Force

Excerpted from The National Rural Assembly’s blog.

The following are responses and recommendations from members of the National Rural Assembly community about the Trump administration’s recent Executive Order forming a new Rural Task Force. These comments represent the diversity of rural people and places, across ages, sectors, geographies and issue areas.

“…I encourage Secretary Perdue and members of the task force to address a wide variety of rural economic and community topics as well as agriculture.

I also strongly recommend that the task force actively seek direct input from all rural Americans.” – Moises Loza, Executive Director, Housing Assistance Council
