' $30,year SENIOR rate out-state I (SENIORS are age 62 and older) st-:,--: .s, CityL rate/Zip: USDA Rural Development will have about $42 million available through its direct home loan program targeted at low-income, residents of Central and East Central Minne- sota in 2010. Qualified first-time and repeat home buyers may also be eli- gible for tax credits made possible by the Worker, Homeownership and Business Assistance Act of 2009. Qual- ified first-time home buyers may be eligible for up to an $8,Q00 tax credit and repeat buyers may qualify for up to $6,500. Both programs are sched- uled to expire June 30. Rural Devel- opment's direct home loan program is intended to help very low and low- income residents living in rural areas achieve home ownership. Applicants must be unable to obtain credit else- where and demonstrate repayment ability. A payment subsidy is also available to applicants to enhance repayment ability. Rural Develop- ment also has a guaranteed home- loan program intended for moder- ate income rural residents. The pro- gram does not have a down payment requirement and loans are made to homeowners by an approved lender. For both the direct and guaranteed program, applicants may purchase a new home, existing home or build a new home. Low-interest loans are also available for low-income resi- dents to make home repairs. Grants are available to home owners over the age of 62 and must be used to remove health and safety hazards. For more information, including income lim- its and ineligible areas, contact your local Rural Development office at (763) 689-3354 ext. 4.
