It's time to rebuild America's rural infrastructure.
Rural America's future viability depends on access to basic and critical investments to transportation, energy, water, healthcare and other rural facilities to attract businesses and people. Farm Credit supports rural electric cooperatives, water and wastewater facilities, healthcare entities and rural communications providers.
We live in the rural communities we serve and understand the staggering need to upgrade these services that drive rural economies and provide quality of life .
The rural electric cooperatives we support provide safe, affordable, reliable electricity across rural America.They maintain millions of miles of electric lines, support renewable energy options and frequently provide broadband service, too.
The water and wastewater companies ensure safe drinking water for families and proper disposal of waste. Rural communications companies keep resident connected.
And we proudly support healthcare and senior living facilities that help keep rural residents healthy and allow them to age in their home communities.
To better draw attention to the needs of rural America and its crumbling infrastructure, Farm Credit helped establish the Rebuild Rural Coalition. This group of more than 250 national, state and local 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.
