USDA Rural Development supports rural prosperity in Maine by investing in modern infrastructure such as high-speed internet and water and waste treatment systems. We help eligible rural Mainers buy or rent affordable housing, and we can partner with you to build or improve essential community facilities such as hospitals, libraries, and schools. We 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 also 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.

For Your Awareness:

**NOTICE** USDA, Rural Development (RD) recently received reports of homeowners receiving letters offering special assistance through the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) and Making Home Affordable trial programs for loans that are delinquent.  The letter provides a payment plan and asks the customer to complete a form to be faxed or mailed which contains private information (social security number, signature). Do not respond to this inquiry, this is not a legitimate request.  If you receive a suspicious call or letter regarding your RD home loan do not follow the instructions and call us at 1-800-414-1226 to speak to a representative. If you suspect you have been a victim of identity fraud you should contact your local authorities.
