We are committed to helping improve the economy and quality of life in rural America. Through our programs, we help rural Americans in many ways.

We offer loans, grants and loan guarantees to help create jobs and support economic development and essential services such as housing, health care, first responder services and equipment, and water, electric and communications infrastructure.

We promote economic development by supporting loans to businesses through banks, credit unions and community-managed lending pools. We offer technical assistance and information to help agricultural producers and cooperatives get started and improve the effectiveness of their operations.

Broadband Coverage

All providers, except mobile wireless carriers, provide coverage data, including maximum advertised download and upload speeds, on a census block basis. This means a provider indicates coverage over a census block when at least one customer is serviced within that area. Mobile wireless carriers use their own coverage boundaries to depict coverage areas and typically do not share connectivity speeds.
