Primary Iowa Counties include, Buena Vista, Calhoun, Pocahontas and Sac with local neighboring counties including Cherokee, Clay, Kossuth, O’Brien, and Palo Alto eligible for theses loans to offset economic losses because of reduced revenues caused by the drought that occurred from August 27th to October 28th last year.

These loans have an interest rate of 4% for businesses and 2.875% for private, nonprofit organizations, a maximum term of 30 years, and are available to small businesses and most private, nonprofits without the financial ability to offset the adverse impact without hardship
