After a brief budget-related interruption in HUD’s Section 184 Program, the Native-American home loan guarantee program is back…and stronger than ever! Earlier this week, President Obama signed a budget agreement that effectively doubled HUD’s authority to guarantee the home mortgages of Native American borrowers – from $6 million to $12.2 million. This will allow the program to help as many as 3,500 Native American families to purchase a home or refinance their exist mortgage between now and September 30th. Section 184 is synonymous with homeownership in Indian Country because it guarantees 100 percent of the loan, which provides a great incentive for lenders to serve Native communities. Since the program guaranteed its first loan in 1996, it’s guaranteed more than 20,000 mortgages totaling $3.3 billion.
