Support for Rural Americans

  • Loan Forgiveness for Farmers: Chol supports public loan forgiveness for farmers. This would help more rural farmers stay on their family's farms. Loan forgiveness for farmers over 10 years. This is a move to incentivize more Americans to enter farming as it is a necessary industry.

​​

  • Loan forgiveness for rural healthcare workers: Rural communities need medical doctors to help in areas with population declines. A quarter of the American population lives in rural areas, and that population is declining due to a lack of access to basic services like medical needs. Making healthcare accessible to people in rural communities is essential.

​​

  • New American Farmers: Chol will work to establish a program for New Americans who are looking to enter farming.

​​

  • Help for Agriculture Industry: Chol would support Farm Workforce Modernization Act (FWMA), HR 1603, bipartisan immigration legislation that would provide undocumented farmworkers and their family members with a path to legal status and citizenship, revise the H-2A agricultural guestworker program to address some employer and worker concerns, and impose mandatory employment verification (“E-verify”) in agriculture.

​​

  • A strong broadband: to help the rural and farming community connect remotely connected to necessary services. Remote work has increasingly become a path to jobs, we need to bring technology to our rural and agricultural communities.
