Triangle loses out on USDA relocations

Published June 13, 2019


The Triangle strikes out again in the race to land a major economic development project. Kansas City, not RTP, will be the new home for two US Department of Agriculture departments that are being moved from Washington, D.C.

The USDA made the announcement this morning.

“Following a rigorous site selection process, the Kansas City Region provides a win win – maximizing our mission function by putting taxpayer savings into programmatic outputs and providing affordability, easy commutes, and extraordinary living for our employees,” said USDA Secretary  Sonny Perdue.

Indiana was the other of the three finalists.
