Tuition Assistance for Rural and Farm Families 

Alternative loans for higher education and specialized training programs

What is MRRC?

Michigan Rural Rehabilitation Corporation (MRRC) is a nonprofit Corporation that is dedicated to serving rural Michigan communities. Originally created by the Federal government in 1935 to assist farm families following the Great Depression, MRRC now focuses on educational loans for college or various skilled trade training programs.
MRRC has been making student loans to Michigan Rural and farm families since 1971 through the various Federal guaranteed loan programs. Following the implementation of the Federal Direct Student Loans in the mid- 1900’s, the Tuition Assistance to Rural and Farm Families (TARFF) alternative loan program was created in 1997 as an alternative student loan program to meet some of the expenses not covered by other loans or grants.
MRRC supports 4-H and FFA members with low interest loans for annual far projects. Group 4-H and FFA projects may be eligible for loans and/or grants.
