RD Helps Mother Buy Her First Home

One of the most rewarding feelings for us at USDA Rural Development is making the call to an applicant once they're approved for a loan under the 502 Direct Home Program. You can hear the excitement in their voice and you can feel the gratitude through the phone lines. This was no different with the Hill family.  Mary Hill and her children, Rhylee (seven) and Colin (3 weeks), were able to purchase their first home in April.

A Place to Call Home

New Orleans natives, Kerry and Trellis Smith, had long dreamed of purchasing a home but because of limited resources, low inventory, and the rising costs of houses in North Texas, this dream seemed out of reach.

USDA Rural Home Loans Make Dream of Homeownership a Reality

Many people have stopped dreaming of homeownership due to the challenging times we live in. But when rural homebuyers are ready, USDA Rural Development staff in Nevada are available help. 

“Whether it’s a Direct Home Loan for very low-income rural homebuyers, the Guaranteed Home Loan for modest income earners, or a 504 Home Repair Loan or Grant, our programs have rural communities covered,” said new Housing Program Director Kara Blake. “Our goal is to make affordable loans available in rural areas, to support communities and economic prosperity.”:
