United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development operates a number of financial assistance programs with the goal of improving the economy and the overall quality of life in rural communities. This includes USDA Rural Development home loans either offered or guaranteed by the USDA. American Pacific Mortgage offers competitive rates and terms on Oregon USDA loans throughout Portland, Happy Valley, Damascus, Boring, and Gresham.
Both USDA direct and USDA guaranteed home loans are available to Oregon residents. The USDA Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program is designed to accommodate low to moderate-income households. USDA approved lenders offer these mortgages directly to consumers and the USDA insures a portion of the loan. USDA Single Family Housing Direct Home Loans on the other hand are made directly by the government in the form of a subsidy. The direct loan program is available to both low and very-low income households. This is also commonly referred to as the Section 502 Direct Loan Program.
