Balzum is part of this years' rural development home loan program who received the Single Family Housing Direct loan. 698 North Dakota families were assisted last year in becoming new home owners.
“Very, very exciting, we got to come in and paint during construction so that was already done. It's a place to call home, you know no more renting.”
In 2009 the USDA granted just fewer than 8-million dollars in loans and grants nation wide.
