The Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Native Learning Center (NLC) would like to present Section 184 Training for Affordable Tribal Housing hosted at the Courtyard Marriott Portland Downtown/Convention Center located in Portland, OR, December 2-3, 2015.
The Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program was created by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 to address the lack of mortgage lending in Indian Country. The 184 program offers a 100% loan guarantee for American Indian and Alaska Native families, Alaska Villages, Tribes, or Tribally Designated Housing Entities. Section 184 loans can be used, both on and off native lands, for new construction, rehabilitation, purchase of an existing home, or refinance.
To help increase Native access to financing this two day training will address:
• How Section 184 works and what it offers
• How Section 184 addresses the lack of mortgage capital in Tribal Communities
• How to use other financial programs like Title VI, LIHTC, and AHP to support Section 184
• Identify eligibility and location requirements
• What are the steps to qualify for Section 184
