Elizabeth Walker Green
Acting Administrator of the Rural Housing Service
Before being appointed to this role, Green served as USDA Rural Development’s State Director for Virginia. During her tenure, she led a team of 61 to invest in rural communities across the state. These investments have resulted in thousands of rural Virginian residents, farms, businesses, and households being able to connect to high-speed broadband internet for the first time, hundreds of new essential community facilities across the state, and tens of thousands of families who were assisted in buying their own homes.
Green has lived in Virginia and worked in Federal and State politics for thirty-three years. During that time Green has cultivated relations with many of rural America’s political and industry leaders. She graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Communications and Political Science.
