Rural Rehabilitation Trust Fund

The Division manages this dedicated revenue fund for purposes of providing scholarships for farm families to assist their children in attending college. The Division is responsible for policy and loan-making decisions of this fund. Investments of fund dollars go to providing low interest loans to farmers for purchasing land, or feeder cattle. The fund also provides capital improvement loans to agricultural fairs. To date the fund has provided assistance to over 20 students, 7 farmers and 5 fairs.
