USDA Loans

USDA loans are less common for ‘city banks’, but can be more desirable. Don’t let the name fool you. If your headquarters is in a major metro, but your project is in a small community—USDA might be the way to go.

About USDA loans

The government guaranteed USDA loan program is open to individuals, corporations, cooperatives, partnerships and other for-profit and nonprofit entities. Loans can be used for an array of purposes: business and industrial startups, acquisitions, construction, conversion, expansion, repair, refinancing, permanent working capital, pollution control and more.

Business and Industry (B&I) loans are for rural areas, defined as cities, towns and their surrounding areas with populations under 50,000, with priority for rural communities with populations under 25,000.

Rural community loans are available to projects like water management, hospitals or fire and safety initiatives. These loans are open to communities with populations under 20,000, including municipalities, counties and special-purpose districts, as well as non-profit corporations and tribal governments.
