National Home Ownership Month
June is National Home Ownership month.
The Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue was among those celebrating National Home Ownership month during a showcase held on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
"At USDA we celebrate each June as National Homeownership Month that highlights homeownership opportunities available to rural Americans through USDA Rural Development housing program as well. All the way back in 1949, President Truman signed the Housing Act. Since then, USDA, single family housing programs have served millions. USDA offers not only guarantee loans but direct loans as well for those who cannot receive credit anywhere else. All the innovations are designed to help people in getting into a home they can afford that's sustainable safe and not only great shelter but all the other benefits."
Farmers and ranchers all over the country can appreciate the significance and importance of home ownership - especially in rural areas when rental homes are not easy to find.
