The United States Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) will hold a one-stop housing fair from 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24 at the Southeastern Utah Association of Local Governments building, 375 S. Carbon Ave.

USDA Rural Development State Director Dave Conine recently announced multiple housing fair events in Utah.

These fairs are scheduled for the following locations: Cedar City, Logan, Price, Tooele, Heber, Moab, and Richfield. These housing fairs are free and open to the public.

"USDA's efforts in hosting this type of event will provide future housing opportunity and security to homeowners," Conine said.

USDA and local partners will highlight the benefits of home ownership and share information on ways families can become and remain successful homeowners during difficult economic conditions.

Non-profit housing agencies, guaranteed lenders, real estate companies, credit counselors, home repair specialists, title companies, and other businesses will be participating. "One Stop Shopping" will be the theme for these events and activities.

USDA Rural Development has played a major role in helping to provide homeownership, home repair and rental assistance to millions of citizens living in rural areas over the past 74 years.

Last year in Utah, 2,018 rural households were assisted with home financing, 84 home repairs, and 1.020 households were supported with rental assistance.

This year, USDA Rural Development is poised to assist 130,000 families nationwide in the dream of homeownership.

USDA Rural Development has eight offices in the state that assist rural communities. Office locations include a state office in Salt Lake City, two area offices in Provo and Richfield, and five field offices in Logan, Vernal, Manti, Cedar City, and Monticello.

USDA Rural Development's mission is to increase economic opportunity and improve the quality of life for rural residents.

Rural Development fosters growth in homeownership, finances business development, and supports creation of critical community and technology infrastructure.

Further information on rural programs is available at a local USDA Rural Development office or by visiting Utah's web site at www.rurdev.usda.gov/ut.
