50th Anniversary of the Rural Development Act
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Rural Development Act. The Act led to the creation of the nation’s four Regional Rural Development Centers (RRDCs), including the Western Rural Development Center (WRDC), a CSG West partner. WRDC plays a critical role in operating extension services and agricultural experiment stations in the western region.
