Multifamily Housing Programs

We provide affordable multifamily rental housing in rural areas by financing projects geared for low-income, elderly and disabled individuals and families as well as domestic farm laborers.  We extend our reach by guaranteeing loans for affordable rental housing designed for low to moderate-income residents in rural areas and towns.

We preserve our portfolio of more than 14,000 properties by aggressively restructuring loans for existing rural rental housing and off-farm labor housing projects to allow for sufficient reserves to meet major repairs and improvements over the lifetime of the property.  On a yearly basis we provide grants to sponsoring organizations to repair or rehabilitate housing for needy families. We also subsidize rents for low-income tenants in our projects who cannot afford to pay their full rent.
