Conventional Cash to Close Grants Income Limit Changes
Income limits for the Conventional Cash to Close Grant used with the Freddie Mac HFA AdvantageSM option are changing. For most counties the income limits are increasing.
The updated income limits are available for new or existing Minnesota Housing commitments submitted or re-submitted to Loan Product Advisor® (LPA) on or after July 29, 2018. When submitted/re-submitted, LPA will automatically apply the more generous income limit (2017 or 2018).  
The updated Conventional Cash to Close Lender Guide will be posted on our website on July 30.
Reminder: 4% IPC Limit on HFA Preferred™ Loans Expiring
Loans using the 4% Interested Party Contribution (IPC) allowance on Fannie Mae HFA Preferred™ loans with an LTV above 90% must be purchased by U.S. Bank Home Mortgage, HFA Division by August 10, 2018. HFA Preferred loans purchased August 11, 2018 or later must defer to Fannie Mae HomeReady™ standard guidelines on IPCs. For more information and for additional loan requirements, refer to U.S. Bank Lender Operations Update L-2018-028.
