​​WASHINGTON, D.C. – The ​​United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development is providing tools and resources to help rural communities recover from the devastation brought by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Rural Development is considering requests from businesses and utilities that are current USDA borrowers to defer principal and/or interest payments and to provide additional temporary loans. Current USDA single-family home loan customers may also qualify for assistance.

USDA Rural Development is partnering with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which is taking the lead to provide emergency housing in the affected areas.

Assistance information is on the Rural Development website. Head to their contact page to find the nearest USDA Rural Development office.
