If you practice in a not-for-profit clinic or organization in a rural community, you may qualify for a federal loan for infrastructure improvements or acquisition of needed IT equipment.

According to Rochelle Owen, director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Community Programs in Indianapolis, low-interest loans are available for community facilities in areas with populations of up to 20,000.

The loans can be used for:

  • Construction or improvement of community facilities for health care, public safety and public services
  • Acquisition of land needed for a facility
  • Purchase of equipment required for facility operation

Applicants must have the legal authority to borrow and repay loans, pledge security for loans and to construct, operate and maintain the facilities.
