Federal Program Information
Federal Program Description Program objectives include the improvement of rural employment, and to develop or finance rural businesses. This is accomplished by bolstering the existing credit structure via loan guarantees. This program is also known as the rural business and industry program. Funds may be used to purchase a business slated to close, buy equipment, buildings or land, prevent loss of employment opportunities, or expand employment opportunities.
Rural Development’s B& I Guaranteed Loan Program provides additional funds to lenders in connection with program’s purpose to improve, develop, or finance business, industry, and employment and improve the economic and environmental climate in rural communities. This will be achieved by bolstering the existing private credit structure through the guarantee of quality loans which will provide lasting community benefits.
