First USDA Rural Development Home Loan Recipient

Friday, August 22, 2014

During the Dodge City Days festivities, we were honored to have Senator Pat Roberts home to help us celebrate.  It is a great time for our community as we celebrated and congratulated Megan Estrada on being the first approved home loan with the USDA Rural Development Home Loan Program in Dodge City.

Three years ago, Southwest Kansas Leaders took on a task to amend the USDA Rural Development Housing Guidelines with regard to the population requirements. This legislation change was needed to help fulfill the housing demands of our growing economy.

We were honored to have Senator Pat Roberts and his Staff with us to help celebrate this accomplishment. It was due to their efforts that this legislation changed for Dodge City, Garden City, and many other communities in our nation that were facing the same struggles.

We cannot thank Senator Pat Roberts and his Staff enough for sticking with us and continuing to work on this legislation year after year. He accomplished what we were told could not be done and we thank him for everything he has done.
