Amortization Limits
Type: Regulation
Federal Register Document Type: Proposed
FCA Regulations contain a “gap” in lending authorities between a production credit association (PCA) and an agricultural credit association (ACA). A PCA has authority to make short- and intermediate-term loans for a period of 10 years (15 for aquatic producers), with a maximum amortization period of 15 years. Additionally, any refinancing may not extend beyond 15 years from the date of the original loan. An ACA has the same short- and intermediate-term authority lending authority; however, there is no limitation on the amortization period as well as the refinancing period.

Text of Comment Letter

Please find attached our comment letter for the proposed rule regarding the repeal of PCA amortization limits.
