USDA Has Funds Available For Home Financing 

Effective 06/1/2010

Effective June 1, 2010, USDA Home Loan financing is available to homebuyers.  However there are some major changes to the program.

First: The USDA Funding Fee is no longer 2.00% (two percent)

Second: The "NEW" USDA Funding Fee is 3.50% (three and a half percent)
