USDA Launching Monthly Community Outreach Day in McCook

Secretary Tom Vilsack kicked off National Homeownership Month during the month of June. As part of this nationwide celebration, USDA highlighted programs that help people in rural, tribal, and underserved areas buy, building, or repairing affordable homes in America’s smallest towns and communities.

“Rural America is a place everyone can call home,” Vilsack said. “Whether you own or rent a home, you’re invested in and connected to the place you live. While homeownership is a good fit for many, renting also helps people invest in their communities and build wealth for their families and generations to come. This kind of support is critical now more than ever, as people in rural communities face rising housing costs. Through single family, multi-family, rental assistance, home repair, and other programs, USDA Rural Development is here to improve rural livability across the United States.

During June, the department highlighted the ways the Biden-Harris Administration has invested $26 billion to help nearly 150,000 families and individuals in rural and tribal communities. More than 35,000 families and individuals living in socially vulnerable communities have achieved homeownership.

USDA is working with lenders and community partners to open the door to homeownership & home repairs for rural Americans. 

Under the Direct and Guaranteed Home Loan Programs. 100% financing is offered to qualifying families.

The Homeowner Repair Program offers a 1% loan rate and possible grant funds (with qualifying formulas) for those over the age of 62.

These programs are for rural Nebraska areas (populations of 20,000 or less) and income guidelines do apply. USDA has been hosting events across the nation to showcase affordable housing programs for lenders, community partners, families, and individuals. 

Starting July 6th, 2022
