Meat and Poultry Intermediary Lending Program
AADA’s mission for the USDA-MPILP is to boost rural economic development by financing small business owners who are expanding or starting a slaughter or processing facility within Alabama. AADA’s end goal of the MPILP is to facilitate the start-up and expansion of small and medium sized slaughter and processing plants. “This will positively impact everyone within the food supply chain from the farmer to the slaughter & processing facility, and the consumer, says Commissioner Rick Pate.”
We are excited and honored to be one of the few recipients by USDA.
MPILP provides grant funding to non-profit intermediary lenders to finance the establishment, expansion, or operation or meat and poultry processing facilities. Together with this award, USDA provided $88.6 million to nine nonprofits in seven states.
