USDA Home Loans
Eligibility for certain USDA home loan programs and the USDA Satellite Grant Program is determined much like qualifying for a regular mortgage to purchase a home. However, in order to be eligible for many USDA loans, household income must meet certain guidelines. Also, the home to be purchased or served must be located in an eligible rural area as defined by USDA.
