USDA/FSA RIN: 0560-AI43 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: Farm Loans and Mediation Program Changes 

The final rule will make changes in the regulations to be consistent with provisions of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill). Most of the changes made by the rule were self-enacting and have already been implemented administratively. In addition, the rule will make the changes for equitable relief and the State Agricultural Mediation Program, which are the only changes that were not self-enacting. The changes increase statutory loan limits or improve the various loan programs (direct farm ownership loans, direct and guaranteed loans, microloans, and emergency loans) and will relieve some restrictions to participation or otherwise encourage participation.
