Support Rural Credit Access

Congress has introduced legislation to reduce borrowing costs and increase access to credit for borrowers in rural America. The Enhancing Credit Opportunities in Rural America (ECORA) Act would exempt interest on loans secured by agricultural real estate from income taxes. By lowering the cost to service these types of loans, banks will be able to provide more agricultural and real estate loans, ultimately increasing access to credit for farmers and ranchers across rural America. The ECORA Act will help guarantee that small ag producers have access to the credit they deserve. Contact your lawmakers and urge them to co-sponsor and support the ECORA Act (H.R. 1872 and S. 1641).
