Enhancing Credit Opportunities in Rural America Act of 2016 or the ECORA Act of 2016

It also includes any single family residence that is: (1) the principal residence of its occupant, (2) located in a rural area which is not within a Metropolitan Statistical Area and has a population of 2,500 or less; and (3) is purchased or improved with the proceeds of a loan secured by property used for the production of one or more agricultural products.
