Helping Farmers Find Funding

Connect with SBA-backed Lenders and Check out New USDA Tool that Matches Farmers to Loans

The SBA supports farmers with guaranteed loans that may be used for things like:

1. The purchase of land, buildings, and land improvements (fencing, irrigation systems, construction of dikes, silos, barns, hog and dairy facilities, etc.) as part of an eligible project;

2. Construction, renovation, or improvement (including water systems) of farm buildings other than residences;

3. The purchase of farm machinery and equipment;

4. The purchase of seed and the acquisition of animals.

And if you're located in a rural-designated area, SBA-backed loan fees are reduced at least through September.

To find an SBA-backed lender, check out Lender Match - a free online referral tool that connects small businesses with participating SBA-approved lenders.

Additionally the USDA offers a variety of funding opportunities to help farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners finance their businesses. The newly launched   Farm Loan Discovery Tool was created to help you identify USDA loans that best meet your specific needs.

Answer a few short questions to learn about USDA farm loans that might be right for you. USDA also offers other funding opportunities to help farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners finance their business. Explore their Fund page to learn about these programs.
