About The Program

The Conservation Loan and Loan Guarantee Program is a voluntary program that assists farmers in implementing conservation practices by financing qualifying conservation projects. All guarantees will be at 75 percent of the loan amount. Applicants must have an acceptable conservation plan that includes the project to be financed. Preference is given to beginning farmers and socially disadvantaged applicants, conversion to sustainable or organic production practices, and compliance with highly erodible land conservation requirements. Eligibility for the program is not restricted to those who cannot get credit elsewhere.
