USDA Announces It Will Begin Paying Off $800 Million in Farm Loans – How Are Funds Distributed and How Does This Reduce Inflation?
The US Department of Agriculture is providing payments of nearly $800 Million in assistance to farmers across the country. How is this being managed and who is receiving these loans?
The USDA is paying off farm loans but how is this being managed? Are certain groups receiving funds in an unethical or racial basis? Americans deserve to know.
Today, the USDA announced it is paying off farm loans – $800 million worth.
Today’s announcement kicks off a process to provide assistance to distressed farm loan borrowers using several complementary approaches, with the goal of keeping them farming, removing obstacles that currently prevent many of these borrowers from returning to farming, and improving the way that USDA approaches borrowing and servicing. Through this assistance, USDA is focused on generating long-term stability and success for distressed borrowers.
“Through no fault of their own, our nation’s farmers and ranchers have faced incredibly tough circumstances over the last few years,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “The funding included in today’s announcement helps keep our farmers farming and provides a fresh start for producers in challenging positions.”
Work has already started to bring some relief to distressed farmers. As of today, over 13,000 borrowers have already benefited from the resources provided under the Inflation Reduction Act as follows:
Approximately 11,000 delinquent direct and guaranteed borrowers had their accounts brought current. USDA also paid the next scheduled annual installment for these direct loan borrowers giving them peace of mind in the near term.
Approximately 2,100 borrowers who had their farms foreclosed on and still had remaining debt have had this debt resolved in order to cease debt collections and garnishment relieving that burden that has made getting a fresh start more difficult.
Americans deserve to know how this money is being paid and to whom? Is this a boondoggle that the Biden gang is using to pay off their cronies? Where is this money going? How does this address inflation?
Below is today’s announcement from the USDA.
