Rural Broadband Access Loans and Loan Guarantees Program The Basics: This program makes loans and guarantees to finance the construction, leasing, improvement, acquisition, refinance loans on rural broadband infrastructure.

As the two examples of successful projects in Alabama and Michigan illustrate, by providing access to 6,000 and 5,000 residents over areas of 3,500 square miles, this program is intended for rural applicants only. Loans can be one of three types: at the cost of interest that borrowing from the department of Treasury is, at a flat 4 percent cost of interest, or a private

loan which the Rural Utilities Service will guarantee 80 percent of. §

Program staff say that local governments have applied to and been successful with this loan program before. Staff specifically advise local government applicants to know the requirements for this kind of business and have experienced staff on hand to implement the operation.
