USDA Rural Housing History

USDA Rural Housing History shows this government insured home loan program has had great success over the last 60 years and is gaining in popularity. 

In 1949, USDA's telecommunications loan program was established to provide telephone service to rural America. At the time, only one in three farms had access to telephone service. As it did with the rural electrification program, the Telephone Loan Program revolutionized the lives of millions of rural families and businesses by providing connectivity, access to emergency services and business activities that fueled economic growth. Today, Rural Utilities Service (formerly REA), provides loans and grants for telecommunication, electricity and water and environmental services. It is also administering a program, funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, to provide broadband service to under-served communities.

Also in 1949, passage of the Housing Act marked a turning point the nation's history by establishing the Farmer's Home Administration. To date, three million rural Americans have benefited by receiving housing loans, grants and guarantees totaling $124.6 billion.

USDA Rural Development's mission is to increase economic opportunity and improve the quality of life for rural residents. Rural Development fosters growth in home ownership, finances business development and supports the creation of critical community and technology infrastructure. Further information on rural programs is available at a local USDA Rural Development office or by visiting www.USDALoanExpert.com!
