The U.S. Department of Agriculture will hold a Rural Home-buyer Information Fair from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Community Action Team Office, 364 Ninth St., Suite A (upstairs).

The fair will provide an opportunity to learn about the USDA’s low-interest mortgages and home-loan guarantees for qualified individuals and families in rural communities, and a chance to speak to a loan specialist. No down payment is required. Competitive interest rates are available, as well as home loan options for low-income households. No appointment is necessary.
