Programs offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Housing Service that make home loans and loan guarantees available to rural families with an income below 80% of the median income level in the communities where they live who do not qualify for a conventional loan. Direct loans are made for the purchase of a new home or for new home construction including site preparation. The loan guarantee program guarantees loans made by private lenders.
