For over 70 years, the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Rural Development Program has focused on improving the economic and social welfare of rural America. USDA's Single Family Housing Programs provide homeownership opportunities to low- and moderate-income Americans living in rural areas. Beginning September 1, 2014, the USDA imposed a number of important changes to one of these programs: the Single Family Rural Housing Guaranteed Loan Program, or SFHGLP. These changes were codified in an Interim Final Rule, and were implemented with the goal of making the Program easier for borrowers and lenders alike. This professional development online course explores requirements for the Program, including eligibility for lenders, borrowers, and properties. Students will also learn about permitted and prohibited use of loan funds, the guarantee process, and how guaranteed loans are serviced.
