Rural Development A $28 million investment in Columbus County schools will benefit generations of students.
(TABOR CITY, NC) – The U.S. Department of Agriculture and Rural Development participated in a groundbreaking ceremony today at a K-8 school site.
Rural Development is investing $28 million to help build a school in Tabor City.
This investment reflects the Biden-Harris administration’s commitment to building a better
America by investing in rural communities and their schools through investments to increase
energy efficiency, ensuring our schools have the technology and labs needed to prepare students for jobs in
tomorrow’s economy or build new buildings where needed.
“This school will be a reflection of the Biden-Harris administration’s investment in the future
of rural America,” said one representative, “These teachers and students will have access to tools that
equip them positively for a prosperous future.
The new energy-efficient facility will include:
• 39 K-8 classrooms
• specialized classrooms
• A gym
• Administrative offices
Under the Biden-Harris administration, rural development provides loans and grants to help
expand economic opportunities, create jobs and improve the quality of life for millions of
Americans in rural areas. This aid supports the improvement of infrastructure; Business
development; lodging; community facilities such as schools, public safety and health care; and
high-speed Internet access in rural, tribal and high poverty areas.
