USDA MORTGAGES

Rural Development Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program 

This program assists approved lenders in providing low and moderate-income households the opportunity to own adequate, modest, decent, safe and sanitary dwellings as their primary residence in eligible rural areas. Eligible applicants may build, rehabilitate, improve or relocate a dwelling in an eligible rural area. The program provides a 90% loan note guarantee to approved lenders in order to reduce the risk of extending 100% loans to eligible rural homebuyers.

 

Who may apply for this program?  Applicants must:

         Meet Income - eligibility.    

         Agree to personally occupy the dwelling as their primary residence.

         Be a U.S. Citizen, U.S. non-citizen national or Qualified Alien.

         Have the legal capacity to incur the loan obligation.

         Have not been suspended or debarred from participation of any federal programs.

         Demonstrate the willingness to meet credit obligations in a timely manner.

         Purchase a property that meets all program criteria.                                                               

 

Where is an eligible area? Check eligible addresses for the loan guarantees.

 

How may funds be used? Funds backed by loan guarantees can be used for:
