Community Facilities Loan Program
This program provides affordable funding to develop essential community facilities in rural areas. An essential community facility is defined as a facility that provides an essential service to the local community for the orderly development of the community in a primarily rural area, and does not include private, commercial or business undertakings.
Eligible borrowers include: public bodies, community-based non-profit corporations, and federally-recognized Tribes.
Community Food Projects
The primary goal of the Community Foods Project is to meet the food needs of low-income individuals through food distribution, community outreach to assist in participation in Federally assisted nutrition programs.
Private nonprofit organizations may make proposals. Because projects must promote comprehensive responses to local food, farm, and nutrition issues, we encourage applicants to create partnerships among public, private nonprofit and private for-profit organizations. Nonprofit applicants must meet three requirements: (1) have experience in food work or job training and business development in low-income communities; (2) demonstrate the ability to manage a project; and (3) be willing to share information with researchers, practitioners, and other interested parties.
Community Health Centers
Grants support the development and operation of community health centers that provide preventive and primary health care services, supplemental health and support services and environmental health services to medically underserved areas/populations. The program's priorities include providing services in the most medically underserved areas and maintaining existing centers that are serving high priority populations. Grants are designated for the actual delivery of primary care services and do not cover any facility costs.
Public agencies, nonprofit private organizations, and a limited number of state and local governments are eligible to apply. Profit-making organizations are not eligible.
Community Mental Health Services (CMHS) Block Grant

Community Reinvestment Act
The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) is designed to encourage banks and thrifts to meet the financial credit and service needs of low- and moderate-income neighborhoods. Unlike most government loan or grant programs, the CRA does not appropriate public funds nor does it require potential beneficiaries to submit formal applications to the government. Rather, the law simply requires that lenders use their private-sector resources to meet the financing needs of all communities in which lenders conduct business, consistent with safe and sound banking practices.
Individuals, for-profit and nonprofit entities in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods that benefit from the CRA.
