Wednesday webinar to interview Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, others on federal funding for rural prosperity

The Biden administration has pledged to support and better fund rural communities, but what does that look like? The Brookings Institution's Center for Sustainable Development will host a free webinar at 1 p.m. ET Wednesday, Sept. 8 to discuss the issue, featuring a conversation between Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and New York Times columnists Nicholas Kristof on new Agriculture Department initiatives meant to further rural development. "Then, a panel of government leaders and rural experts will discuss current administration and legislative efforts focused on rural community and economic development, as well as how the federal government can be a trusted partner to rural communities as they seek to realize their visions for prosperity," says the website. 

Audience members may submit questions during the webinar. Click here for more information or to register.
