STAKEHOLDER ANNOUNCEMENT: USDA Revising Single Family Housing Packaging Fees

Vicki Schurman
Release Date

Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Anne Hazlett announced today that USDA is increasing by $250 the fees for certified loan packagers in the Single Family Housing Direct Loan Program and the Single Family Housing Repair Loan and Grant program. 
This change further supports the Agency’s commitment to Single Family Housing Direct Loan packaging. The new fees do not apply to loan application packages when a potential applicant has already signed a disclosure letter with a lower fee. The packaging fee for Single Family Housing Direct Loan Program noncertified packagers remains unchanged.
Revised guidance is available at the Direct Loan Application Packagers website and Attachment 3-A (HB-1-3550).
