The firefighters, police officers, and paramedics who keep America’s communities safe are among the most precious publicly funded resources our country offers. At the push of three buttons, help is dispatched to quench fires, calm disturbances, and perform expert medical care. In Rural America, their faces are familiar; their presence, routine.
But the buildings and infrastructure they rely on can be an outsize cost to rural municipalities as compared to their urban counterparts. That’s why the USDA has earmarked special funds within its Community Facilities Loan Program to help fund the resources required by Rural America’s public safety teams.
Within the USDA’s Community Facilities Loan Program is the umbrella of “public safety,” a category comprised of a variety of essential buildings and infrastructure, including fire departments, police stations, and prisons. But “facilities” doesn’t mean buildings alone. Police vehicles, fire trucks, and public works vehicles and equipment can also make use of the competitively priced loans. If the protection of Americans requires a certain tool or building, chances are a Community Facilities Loan could fund it.
Public safety financing from NAC harnesses a government-guaranteed lending program called the USDA Community Facilities Loan Program. The competitive financing offers funding for projects that traditional banks often decline.
Public bodies, tribes on federal and state reservations, federally recognized tribes, and nonprofit organizations can all qualify.
USDA CF Loans can be used to construct or improve essential community services including, public safety equipment, health care facilities, utilities, education, etc. Public safety loans can be used to build or renovate fire stations and police stations, or to purchase fire trucks, police vehicles, or ambulances, to name a few.
