The USDA loan program provides below-market mortgage rates and 100% financing to low- and moderate-income households. The goal is to provide these households with the opportunity to own their primary residence in eligible rural and suburban areas. Eligible applicants may also build, rehabilitate, improve or relocate a dwelling under this program. This includes making improvements in energy efficiency.
