HUD ONAP is pleased to partner with our colleagues at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to host an introduction to the Native American Direct Loan (NADL) program for Native Veterans. VA’s NADL program allows eligible Native American Veterans to buy, build, or improve a home on federal trust land. NADL can also be used to refinance an existing loan to reduce your interest rate. Learn from NADL specialists and a recipient to see if you qualify and how to apply. Join us at 2:00 p.m. EDT on September 16, 2021.
