The financial institution which originates the mortgage loan must
meet certain requirements noted in the law.
Eligibility: The loan applicant must be a Native
American, which includes Alaska Natives, or an Indian Housing Authority
including a Tribally Designated Housing Authority (TDHE) or a Tribe
which meets certain requirements.
AND AWARD PROCESS:
Eligibility: The homeowner is the ultimate
beneficiary of the program. When the Indian Housing Authority,
TDHE or Tribe is the homebuyer, they may then rent the property.

Loan applicants must provide the lender with documentation on
eligibility, assets, income, debts and liabilities to show ability
to obtain and repay the mortgage loan.
Coordination: A Tribe must develop eviction,
foreclosure, and priority of lien procedures and adopt a residential
mortgage lease acceptable to HUD and the BIA for any property on
trust land within their jurisdiction to be eligible for this program.
The loan applicant must find an existing property or a builder to
construct a home. The proposed home site must be in an Indian area
as defined in the statute. This program is excluded from coverage
under E.O. 12372.
Procedure: Applications are submitted to eligible
financial institutions. With the loan application, the homebuyer
must submit documentation such as pay stubs, W-2 forms (income
tax returns if self-employed), evidence of assets such as bank
accounts, and any other documentation requested by the lender
to support the applicant's ability to obtain and repay the mortgage.
The lender verifies the land status of the proposed property.
Procedure: The financial institution obtains
and reviews all documentation and forwards it to HUD's Office
of Native American Programs. This Office is responsible for assuring
Tribal eligibility, land status, property acceptability and the
creditworthiness of the loan applicant. HUD has responsibility
for the approval or disapproval of the loan (the application for
loan guarantee). Eligible lenders may originate loans under the
Direct Guarantee Program. Direct Guarantee lenders underwrite,
approve and close the loan prior to submission to HUD for the
Loan Guarantee Certificate.
of Approval/Disapproval Time: There are no
specific time requirements for the processing of these loans.
Applicants whose loans are disapproved may appeal the disapproval
if the applicant can provide additional documentation to resolve
the issues which lead to the disapproval.
and Matching Requirements: The loan amount is
calculated based on 97.75 percent of the appraised value of the
property if over $50,000 and 98.75 percent if the property is valued
at or under $50,000. The applicant must have sufficient assets in
cash (or their equivalent) to make the downpayment. The applicant's
total debts (including the mortgage loan) should not exceed 41 percent
of their income (unless valid compensating factors are presented).
and Time Phasing of Assistance: The term of
the loan cannot exceed 30 years. The processing time varies from
time of application to the time the loan closes, but in general
will average from 30 to 120 days unless there are significant
land issues; then 6 to 12 months is possible.
Participating financial institutions must provide HUD with copies
of loan files and must report to HUD on the status of the loan,
once it has closed.
Participating lenders, and closed loan files, are reviewed to
assure compliance with the program's requirements.
Copies of loans files are maintained by HUD. The lender that originates
the loan must maintain a copy of the loan file for 2 years after
loan closing. The lender that services the loan must maintain
the loan file for the life of the loan plus 3 years.
