Housing & Community Facilities


Single Family Housing  

The Housing Programs of USDA Rural Development works to improve the quality of life for rural Americans by ensuring that they have access to safe, well-built, affordable homes. Homeownership builds economic stability and, over the long term, creates equity to finance education, business startups and retirement. People with equity in their homes not only take greater pride in them, they also become more involved in their communities.

Housing activity also benefits the larger economy as wages are earned and spent by those directly involved in housing development. Housing Programs has played a significant role in the National Partnership for Homeownership to help more women and minorities achieve their homeownership goals.

USDA Rural Development Community Facilities Program helps rural communities build or expand vital community facilities, such as assisted living facilities, libraries, police and fire stations, daycare centers and town halls, to name a few. USDA Rural Development provides direct and guaranteed loans as well as grants to help communities acquire needed community facilities, which not only improve the basic quality of life, but also increase the competitiveness of rural communities in attracting and retaining businesses.
