According to the Williams Institute, “10 percent of all same-sex couples in the country live in rural America" and these couples are actually more likely to be families of color and raising children.
This series offers a unique opportunity for USDA and other federal agencies to share information relating to policies, programs, and services that exist to protect, promote and strengthen LGBTQ+ rural communities. Issues ranging from rural housing loans, community facility grants and bullying will be discussed. From housing, education, healthcare, youth empowerment, and more, there will be something for everyone and we welcome and need your voice and perspective to ensure the success of the day.
