– No down payment is required for low- and moderate-income buyers.
– Affordable monthly mortgage payments.
– No cash reserves required in your savings account when you go to closing.

Your income is limited to 115 percent of the area median income for the guaranteed loan.
Single-family, non-farm, owner-occupied principal residences, are eligible.
Eligibility is limited to rural areas, which generally have a population no more than 10,000. In areas far from major metropolitan cities, the town population limit (where the property is located) may be as high as 20,000.
