USDA RURAL HOUSING Income Limit Change?

Mortgage and Lending with Guaranty Bank & Trust Co NMLS ID #68160

According to a recent lender notice, a direct final rule was published by the Federal Register to simplify the USDA Rural Housing income limit structure.  These income changes will become effective January 20, 2009 UNLESS adverse comments are received by January 5, 2009. 

Until final acceptance and implementation of these proposed new income limits, the current limits below will be utilized.

I've had numerous people call and ask me, but I have not heard a "yes" or a "no."  Honestly, I don't know if anyone will know until it happens.... I know a few people that will be HAPPY if it does change!!

RD Alabama has advised the March 20th 2009 date has yet been extended again to April 20th 2009 effective date. My contact advised this is a firm date, as the senante appropriations committee requested an aditional 30 days to implement -but "I would not bet my house on it".

Doug,  do you have a link to the regulations?   I did look on the usda site and could not find anything.  

Also, to edit your post you do have to log in.   I see your followup comments appear as if you are not logged in.
