USDA Names Courtyard in Washington, DC in Honor of Cesar Chavez
Agriculture Department Celebrates Life and Legacy of American Hero

WASHINGTON, March 31, 2015 – Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today
announced the naming of the Cesar Chavez Courtyard at USDA
Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

"Today is the birthday of one of America's great heroes," Vilsack
said. "2015 is also the 50th anniversary of the hunger strike he led
to bring justice and equality to the people who feed America. USDA is
humbled and honored to dedicate a piece of our headquarters to Cesar
Chavez, the man who led and organized peaceful, positive change for
American farmworkers."

Vilsack spoke alongside Christine Chavez-Gonzalez, Chavez's
granddaughter and Farmworker Coordinator for USDA. They were joined by
Deputy Agriculture Secretary Krysta Harden and USDA Rural Housing
Service Administrator Tony Hernandez. The newly named Cesar Chavez
Courtyard is an inviting outside patio on the second floor of the
South Building, part of the USDA's National Headquarters on the
National Mall.

Fifty years ago, Chavez led a United Farm Workers hunger strike that
secured raises and improved conditions for farmworkers all over the
United States. USDA continues to help farmworkers through programs
that ensure they work and live in safe environments.

Since 2009, USDA Rural Development has invested more than $208 million
to develop affordable housing for farmworkers through the agency's
Farm Labor Housing Program. Last week, USDA started accepting
applications for loans and grants for farmworker housing for 2015.

Rural Development's investments in farmworker housing are financing
projects like a 41-home community for farmworkers in Salinas Valley,
Calif. The new apartment complex, Terracina Oaks, is comprised of
five, two-story buildings and a community building. The community
building features a computer learning center, laundry facilities,
community kitchen and a multi-use room. In addition to support for
housing, USDA Rural Development offers a variety of loan and grant
programs to help farmworkers and rural residents in general start

USDA, through its Rural Development mission area, administers and
manages housing, business and community infrastructure programs
through a national network of state and local offices. Rural
Development has a portfolio of more than $209 billion in loans and
loan guarantees. These programs are designed to improve the economic
stability of rural communities, businesses, residents, farmers and
ranchers and improve the quality of life in rural areas. For more
