Home equity loans, credit cards and other more popular methods of financing are what people usually turn to when looking for a loan for home improvement. However, there are other sources available for home improvement loans that many people don’t think about. These sources can come from the government, your power company, and even the company you are purchasing the windows from.
In many cases, these unconventional sources can offer you better financing options and are worth looking in to.
Government Loan for Home Improvement
The United State Government has so many different departments that it is hard to even know what one department does from the next. Unknown to a lot of citizens, there are a number of different departments that do help with housing, home loans, and even providing a loan for home improvement.
You may be able to find the loan you need to make improvements on your home through anyone of these five departments:
- Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
- USDA Rural Development
- United State Department of Agriculture (USDA)
- Veterans Administration (VA)
- Federal Housing Authority (FHA)
Your eligibility for the programs offered in these departments will depend on your financial circumstances, your background and even where your home is located. For information about programs and eligibility requirements contact the above departments directly.
