Investor Spotlight: USDA

Aug 16th, 2023


The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) plays a pivotal role in shaping the agricultural landscape and fostering rural development within Alabama. Through a comprehensive array of programs and initiatives, the USDA extends its support to farmers, ranchers, rural communities, and residents across the state. From facilitating sustainable agricultural practices and ensuring food security to advancing research and fostering economic growth, the USDA's multifaceted efforts are instrumental in propelling Alabama's agricultural sector and enhancing the well-being of its residents.

Investor Spotlight: USDA

Main Street Alabama is honored to collaborate alongside the USDA. Just as we hope to create economic vitality as we revitalize historic downtowns, we support the USDA in its efforts to foster economic opportunity in rural America through innovation, supporting its prosperous growth.

USDA Initiatives 

Main Street Alabama is proud to support USDA and its efforts to promote economic growth and development in our state. The USDA provides vital resources and support to small businesses and communities, helping to create jobs and strengthen local economies. Through programs like the Rural Business Development Grant and the Community Facilities Program, the USDA has helped countless businesses and organizations in Alabama thrive.


Main Street Alabama proudly announces its partnership with the USDA on the Small Box Shop initiative, equipping communities like Heflin, Monroeville, Jasper, Wetumpka, and Enterprise with innovative shipping container storefronts, and with Elba and Marion soon to join the list. This initiative offers budding entrepreneurs a unique chance to trial their business concepts prior to committing to traditional brick-and-mortar setups.
