Butterfield Presents NCCU with Grant to Expand Opportunities in Rural Areas

Washington, DCCongressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) today presented a $480,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to North Carolina Central University in Durham on August 8th.  The funds will be used to purchase video conferencing equipment for 11 end-user sites, including libraries and community centers, to connect residents with services commonly unavailable in rural areas.

USDA’s Distance Learning and Telemedicine Program announced investments in 81 distance learning and telemedicine projects in over 32 states.  The projects will help connect rural communities with medical and educational experts in other parts of the country to offer increased access to health care, substance misuse treatment, and advanced educational opportunities.
