Title: Rural Development Policy on Exclusion of Populations 

Rural Development will issue a Final Rule to implement section 6301 of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill).  The rule will establish a new part to outline the policies and procedures that communities must follow in order to request exclusion of populations incarcerated on a long-term or regional basis, as well as the first 1,500 individuals residing in housing on military bases, from the rural area determination for purposes of qualifying for authorized RD programs that use the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act’s definition of rural.  The regulation will include required information that the agency will accept to document such population exclusions.
