Market Rate GNMA Program

    LHC’s Commitment

    In keeping with its mission to ensure that every Louisiana resident is granted an opportunity to obtain safe, affordable, energy-efficient housing, the LHC offers mortgages through the Market Rate GNMA Program.

    The program allows low and moderate income Louisiana families to realize their dreams of owning a home. Its availability is not limited to first-time homebuyers, and the program provides down payment assistance. It is available to potential homebuyers with household incomes up to 115% of area median income (AMI) established by parish.

    Through the Market Rate GNMA Program, homeowners are offered 30-year, fixed-rate FHA, VA or USDA Rural Development mortgages.
