U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced extended foreclosure and eviction moratorium for all Single-Family Housing Direct Home Loans through Aug. 31, 2020.

The moratorium applies to:
• Initiation of foreclosures or completion of foreclosures in process, excluding vacant and abandoned properties.
• Evictions of borrowers from properties bought with a USDA direct home loan.

USDA’s Single Family Housing Direct Home Loan program (Section 502 Direct Loan program) assists low- and very-low-income applicants obtain decent, safe and sanitary housing in eligible rural areas by providing payment assistance to increase an applicant’s repayment ability. For more information on this and other USDA housing programs, contact your local area office.
