The future viability of rural communities across the country depends on access to the basic and critical infrastructure that attracts businesses and people.
Farm Credit’s support helps electric providers extend electric service to residential and business customers, install new transmission lines and build renewable energy facilities. Our customers are increasing broadband access and upgrading rural water systems to deliver safe drinking water.
The need for upgrading and expanding these vital services is staggering. That is why Farm Credit helped establish the Rebuild Rural Coalition. This group of more than 200 organizations from across the country focuses on rural communities, U.S. agricultural producers, rural businesses and rural families. It advocates for investment in rural America’s infrastructure and understands that rural America’s infrastructure needs are fundamentally different.
