Farmer Access to Credit

What We Fight For

  • Securing sufficient funding and proper servicing of USDA lending programs and ensuring a fair USDA appeals system for family farmers.
  • Eradicating ongoing discriminatory lending practices at all USDA levels.


As credit markets tighten for family farmers, corporate competitors are able to outbid traditional farmers.  These competitors steal farmland away from future generations, compromise sustainable land stewardship, and when land is leased back to farmers, cause debt and dependency on corporations.
