USDA Rural Development Programs

Committed to growing our communities' businesses

Small businesses are the engine of our local economy, and we're dedicated to supporting business owners at every turn. We offer special Rural Development Loans and other assistance through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). As a business owner in Michigan's Upper Peninsula or Northeast Wisconsin, you can take advantage of consultations, assistance and funding opportunities. Program assistance includes direct and guaranteed loans, grants, technical assistance, research and educational materials, including these:

  • Business and industry loan guarantees
  • Renewable energy and efficiency grants
  • Intermediary relending programs
  • Rural business enterprise grants
Contact one of our commercial lenders for more information on these and other USDA programs or visit the USDA Rural Development programs website.
