Veterans in rural areas may qualify for housing loans and guarantees through the U.S. Department of Agriculture's farm loan program.
The USDA provides loans and guarantees to buy, improve or operate farms. Applications from veterans have preference. Farm loans are provided to family-size farmers and ranchers who cannot obtain commercial credit from a bank, Farm Credit System institution, or other lenders.
The USDA and Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs encourage veterans to seek information about the program. A link to more information is online at www.MyEagleNews.com or by calling Grant County Veteran Service Officer Bryan G. Hunt, 541-575-1631
