USDA Implements Immediate Measures to Help Rural Residents, Businesses and Communities Affected by COVID-19 USDA Rural Development has taken a number of immediate actions to help rural residents, businesses and communities affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Rural Development will keep our customers, partners and stakeholders continuously updated as more actions are taken to better serve rural America.

COVID-19 RESOURCES On April 13, 2020, USDA unveiled a one-stop-shop of federal programs that can be used by rural communities, organizations and individuals impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 Federal Rural Resource Guide (PDF, 349 KB) is a first-of-its-kind resource for rural leaders looking for federal funding and partnership opportunities to help address this pandemic.

On May, 4, 2020, USDA released a summary of key service changes to increase the use of telehealth in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

These changes will help ensure that more rural residents can access care when and where they need it during this pandemic. This summary is intended to help interested parties understand the telehealth changes that have been made and explore new ways to support health care providers as they increase or transition to virtual care services.
