#askUSDA Your Questions During Virtual Office Hours

Tomorrow, June 19, at 1:30 pm (Eastern time) is the time to stretch your digital legs and participate in USDA's Virtual Office Hours chat on Twitter. Discussion will focus on the administration's efforts to create a solid rural America that's through support of broadband, education medical and water quality projects.

Deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development Doug O'Brien will host the session and will also discuss USDA efforts to provide homeownership opportunities to limited-income rural residents and help them refinance their homes to take advantage of low interest rates.

During the chat, O'Brien will answer YOUR questions. You can submit them in advance to the @USDA Twitter account using the hashtag #AskUSDA.
