On November 1, 1993, the Rural Electrification Loan Restructuring Act, Pub. L. 103-129, 107 Stat. 1356, (RELRA) amended the Rural Electrification Act of 1936, 7 U.S.C. 901 et seq., (RE Act) to establish a new interest rate structure for insured electric loans. Insured electric loans approved on or after this date, are either municipal rate loans or hardship rate loans. Borrowers meeting the criteria set forth in 714.8 are eligible for 5 percent hardship rate loans.

APPROXIMATE FFB QUARTERLY RATES*
*These approximate FFB rates are based upon a common
type of RUS loan in which the quarterly loan payments are derived
by amortizing over 30 years, but the loan matures with a balloon
payment at the maturity indicated in the column heading (for example,
10 years). The column headings are approximate maturity terms, since
the loans end on quarterly payment dates.
