Financing is obtained from the Rural Utilities Service (RUS), as well as the National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation (CFC). These agencies have been instrumental in the development and growth of your Cooperative. At the present time, we are fully regulated by the Utilities Division of the Iowa Utilities Board except for rates.
