Eligible Rural Area Q&A

 

On March 26, 2013, the President signed “H.R.933 — Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013” which provides funding through September 30, 2013.  The Bill also extends the eligible rural areas that were in effect as of September 30, 2012 until September 30, 2013 for Rural Housing Service rural housing programs.

 

Administrative Notice (AN) 4711 (Attached) was issued on March 27, 2013.  This AN is a replacement of AN 4679, “Implementation of 2010 CensusDQo8L3NwYW4+PHNwYW4gc3R5bGU9ImNvbG9yOiMwMDAwMDIiPkRhdGEgZjwvc3Bhbj48c3BhbiBzData for Rural Development Programs”, which was issued on September 27, 2012.  Additionally, a stakeholder announcement was released on March 28, 2013http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/RD-StakeholderAnnouncements.html.
