IMPORTANT NOTICE ---   New Contact Information for the single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program!

 New Email address for all GRH program needs: Sfhg-apu@rd.usda.gov

Beginning October 1, 2018, GRH program files will no longer be reviewed by  our Virginia Staff.  A newly established National Office team, comprised of specialists from around the country, will review and issue Conditional Commitments and process Loan Note Guarantees.  The process of reviewing files and the rules for doing so will not alter in any way, and this team is expected to fully maintain 48 hours turn times on complete files.  This should have no effect on how Lenders do business and infect is expected to improve processing times over the course of the year and maintain better consistency in interpretation and application of our rules and regulations. 

With this adjustment, there is also a change of email address for contact with the processing team and to run questions and scenarios:   sfhg-apu@rd.usda.gov

Questions regarding technical issues:   Rural Development Help Desk phone number is:   1-800-457-3642
