Farmers may seek low-interest disaster loans

Email News Alerts

Low-interest loans are available to farmers affected by floods and other severe weather in 28 Minnesota counties.

The Minnesota Rural Finance Authority announced the loan availability Wednesday, following a presidential disaster declaration in April.


Weather-related damages not covered by insurance may allow farmers to receive the loans. For instance, farmers may apply for building repairs or replacement or for purchase of feed to replace lost crops.
