TYPES OF VA LOAN PROGRAMS
Purchase Loans and Cash-Out Refinance
VA-guaranteed loans are available for homes for your occupancy or a spouse and/or dependent (for active duty service members).
Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan (IRRRL)
The IRRRL is a "VA to VA" loan, meaning it can only be done if you have an existing VA guaranteed loan on the property. The IRRRL is generally performed to lower the interest and reduce the monthly payment on the existing VA guaranteed loan.
Native American Direct Loan (NADL) Program
The NADL program helps Native American Veterans purchase, construct, improve, or re-finance a home on Native American trust lands. Your tribal organization must participate in the VA direct loan program.
Adapted Housing Grants
VA helps Veterans with certain total and permanent disabilities related to your military service obtain suitable housing with either a Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) or Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) grant.
