North Highway 61 PKone 2142 Rural Housing Act is Explained New Program 'Gives Farmers Incentive, FHA Supervisor Says Mississippi County farmers linvc a new incentive tor :naklng cconoin- ical units DILI of farm nulls previously thought uneconomical. I) c. Neal, county sticprvisor for (hu Farmers Home Administration said lo- day In explaining the new hou.sin K net. The act was signed by president Trumpn July 15 rind since then the Farmers Home Administration hns been designed as the administrative iiKcm-v. and will now furnish farmers with applications. Mr. Neal explained that the act was the first move to case tin; linus- iiiR silunlira in rural areas whnc there is 10 HIT cent of overcrowded- ness and compared to a four per cent fi-ure lor urban areas. Tn this connection, ;t was noinl- ed out thnt since MKsKsippi County is densely imnulalecl and an agricultural area, and in many areas I lie honsini; is t-xlromcly poor. For Hit reason the trimly may Ret a;e slnrc of funds allocated lor rural rebuilding and rnuiir. Mr Noal said that Hie program would start slowly, with an estimated five fanners in this county to receive assistance during Ilir- year, but the number ran increase to 35 or 40 .s"nn thereafter. A'sislancc Seen The suuervisor expie.ssed a belief tbal. since no other concentraterj effort lo relieve rnrnl houslim over- crowdedi' had been made here. Ihe assi-tance and backing of civic and business firms would be a.ssur- ed. One phase of Ihe pror-iam that Is Jicw to otlior lonn assistance mo- grnms is llittl there is a definite incentive /or c!ian»e in farm methods, lo improve (arm units. Mr. Neal >aid that when a fanner had received n loan nnd found lint, he could net repay the lonn. llm government R-ould pay up to one half the principal and declare a moratorium on interest if the farmer made a change in farming |)ro- crourJiiBs ami Ihe adj'iUed farmim; plan made his income adequate to resume payment. Although (here will be no limit on the amount of the loan, it is estimated that the ;..vr-rn2c loan will be small, about S2.2QO, since there Is a Sl.OOO limit on repair loans. The loans are repayable over a 33-year period at four per cent interest.
