Uses and Use Restrictions

HUD insures lenders against loss on mortgage loans.

These loans may be used to finance the purchase or reconstruction of a one-family home that will be the principal residence of a borrower that is a victim of a Presidentially-declared disaster.

Disaster victims are not required to meet the 3.5 percent minimum investment requirements.
