ASRC Delivers Salesforce-Based App for USDA’s Rural Development Program

ASRC Federal said it has provided the Department of Agriculture with a new Salesforce platform-based application in support of the agency's Rural Development Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program.

HBIIP was created to boost the sales and use of higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel to help empower the economies of rural communities, ASRC Federal said

“Through collaborative efforts with Rural Development stakeholders and our Salesforce implementation experts – we delivered a technology solution that will help farmers and rural communities while strengthening our country’s energy independence,” said Jennifer Felix, ASRC Federal's CEO and president and a Potomac Officers Club member. 

Felix added that ASRC Federal has been supporting USDA missions for over a decade now and is proud to provide solutions that support farmers and rural communities. 

The company's application, which was launched in May, helps rural businesses apply for federal grant set-asides as part of the HBIIP. It also serves as a tool that USDA leaders can use to track grant data and other program requirements, streamlining the management of HBIIP grants.

ASRC Federal said its team of software and application developers performed full life cycle development and deployment, including the gathering of business requirements and final production.

USDA's rural development programs offer loans, grants and loan guarantees to help create jobs and foster economic development. The programs also support essential services such as housing, health care, first responder services and equipment, water, electricity and communications infrastructure.

ASRC is a diversified defense contractor headquartered in Beltsville, Maryland, according to its LinkedIn profile. 

The company's specializes in key support areas such as engineering, technical services, information technology, professional services, infrastructure support and mission solutions.
