USDA/FSA RIN: 0560-AI33 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Direct Farm Ownership Loan (FO) Microloan (ML) Program 

In January, 2016, FSA implemented a Direct Farm Ownership Microloan that will provide Farm Ownership loans of up to $50,000 that are expected to most benefit beginning farmers and farmers with small farms that have less traditional farm operations, and specialty crop producers seeking to purchase or enlarge relatively smaller plots of land, who are not typically FSA customers. The final rulemaking publication for this initiative will clarify the Direct Microloans, for borrowers with microloans for both operating loans and farm ownership loans.
