The Community & Economic Development Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) improves the quality of life in rural areas by contributing to long-term improvements in local economies. It was created by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Economic Development Agency. Clarke Electric channels RLF funds to businesses that meet program criteria. To date, Clarke Electric has loaned out more than $1.2 million to support local businesses and development in our Southern Iowa region. As the funds are paid back, they become available for re-lending. To learn more about the USDA Revolving Loan fund click here or contact Clarke Electric directly.
