We are your local source of information on this Federal program created specifically for Native Americans to purchase a new home, rehabilitate an existing home, or to refinance.

The HUD Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program is a mortgage product that was established by Congress in 1992. It was designed to offer home ownership and housing rehabilitation opportunities for eligible Native American individuals, families, tribes, and tribally designated housing entities.

The HUD Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program has resulted in improved access to capital for Native Americans, empowering the residents of Indian communities to buy or build a home, refinance, or rehabilitate existing housing.

imgHow HUD Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program works
In order to promote the general welfare of lower-income Native Americans, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) created several programs, to increase home ownership and affordable housing opportunities, to eligible Native Americans on their native lands and within an approved Indian area.

HUD guarantees the mortgage loan to the lender by assuring that the investment will be repaid in the event of a foreclosure. The borrower pays a 1% loan guarantee fee at closing which can be financed in the mortgage or paid up front. The borrower must apply for the loan with a participating lender.

Who is eligible for the Section 184 loan?

You are eligible if you are:
• An American Indian or Alaska Native who is an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe
• An Indian tribe
• A Tribally Designated Housing Entity (TDHE)
• Or an Indian Housing Authority (IHA)

We can assist you, utilizing this loan program, to help you achieve your home ownership goals.

The program applies to almost any property within the State of California which is designated as an “Indian Area.”
