USDA Town Hall Meetings to Gather Local Input

United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) News Release

U.S. Dept. of Agriculture agencies will hold town hall meetings at 18 locations across Montana to discuss opportunities for and barriers to maximizing access to USDA programs and services.

Montana leaders from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency, Rural Development, and Food and Nutrition Service will listen to concerns from local citizens and community leaders at town hall meetings:
