Help USDA Use Section 504 Funds!!!
Update from July 23, 2013. With only 7 weeks remaining in Fiscal Year 2013, USDA still has a substantial amount of funding available for Section 504 home repair loans. Loan funds not obligated by September 30, 2013 will be lost. Your help in getting out the word and working with USDA Rural Development (RD) to process loan applications is critical. USDA Section 504 loan funds are available in all states.
There is undoubtedly far more need than funds available for this program, which helps very low-income homeowners repair their homes. It would send the wrong message to have these sorely needed funds go unused. Please contact your local USDA RD office and work with them to help very low-income homeowners get their homes repaired!
