We support rural prosperity in Alaska by investing in modern infrastructure such as high-speed internet, electric service, and water and waste treatment systems. We help eligible rural Alaskans buy or rent affordable housing, and we can partner with you to build or improve essential community facilities such as hospitals, first responder stations, libraries, and schools. We also boost rural economic development by funding technical assistance for small business owners and entrepreneurs, helping them design robust business plans, find new markets, and promote their goods and services. We offer loan guarantees to help eligible businesses and manufacturers expand or improve, and we support energy programs that finance renewable systems for agriculture and industry. Because so many of our employees live and work in the very communities we serve, the USDA Rural Development mission is personal to us. It’s this commitment to our neighbors that sets us apart. Rural America is hometown America. More than a great place to live, it’s the people who make up America’s spirit and character.
