NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The U.S. Agriculture Department says more than 6,900 families used its rural home loan program to buy a house in fiscal year 2013.

The USDA says the total private and public investment by those using the program topped $846 million in Tennessee last year.


The department says First Community Mortgage of Murfreesboro made more than $84 million in rural home loans, tops in the state last year.
