USDA Rural Development hosted a homeownership meeting on June 3, 2014 at the Norfolk at the City Council Chambers (in the City Office building).  This served as a kick off to Homeownership Month which is in June.

USDA premiered their videos produced on USDA home ownership programs.  One is in Spanish with English subtitles and the other in English only.  You may visit the videos on You Tube found at these links: Spanish version visit: http://youtu.be/alL0QLaWNXI  for English version visit: http://youtu.be/Oq9StIi6_dI.

The videos, with interviews by local homebuyers and city officials, were produced with the support of the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority.  The videos focus on the positive effects of homeownership on the buyer, local businesses and the communities.

President Obama’s plan for rural America has brought about historic investment and resulted in stronger rural communities. Under the President’s leadership, these investments in housing, community facilities, businesses and infrastructure have empowered rural America to continue leading the way – strengthening America’s economy, small towns and rural communities. USDA’s investments in rural communities support the rural way of life that stands as the backbone of our American values.
