Loan Programs Provide Community Investment
Improving the quality of life in our local communities is part of our mission. The united States Department of Agriculture, Rural Economic Development Agency created the Community/Economic Development Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) to improve the quality of the life in rural areas by contributing to long-term improvements in the local economy.
The RLF program is a funding source with the goal to provide low interest loans that assist with local economic and community development projects. Priorities include:
- Job creation and retention
- Diversification of the local economy
- Improving the skills of the rural workforce
- Upgrading the public infrastructure to improve the health, safety and/or medical care of rural residents.
