USDA official to visit La Salle Canal Boat

Posted by wlpo on October 16, 2010

Believing access to money for business is necessary for jump starting the economy in rural towns, an official with the USDA will be making a stop at the canal boat in La Salle.

Judith Canales is the National Administrator for Rural Business and Cooperative programs for USDA Rural Development.  She’s coming to La Salle at noon Tuesday to talk about how they can help strengthen businesses and local economies in towns like La Salle.

The Canal Corridor Association has used a USDA Business and Industry loan guarantee to refinance the debt from the canal boat construction.
