$0.00 Down USDA Update

This is hot off the press from the National Office in Washington DC:

Status Update on Proposed Changes to Eligibility Areas Based on 2010 Census Data

As January 15, 2014 approaches, many are wondering whether Rural Development will be implementing the Future Eligibility maps based on the 2010 Census data.   At present, the eligible areas remain unchanged and we continue in a “holding pattern” until either an appropriations bill or a continuing resolution is passed.  Notification will be sent pertaining to changes to this status.

Moral to the story: USDA eligability areas have not changed and with any luck, maybe they won’t?
