My finance office handles USDA direct loans in the area. Do you have a specific property you are considering?

Here is some information on USDA direct: The USDA Direct loan is the harder of the two to qualify for. Applicants must have an income under 80 percent of the median for the area, or under 50 percent for very low income applicants. The applicant must currently have insufficient housing and be able make the monthly mortgage payments, including taxes and insurance with the loan.

It is my understanding that all of Sussex county is elligible.
