Native American Direct Loan Program

The Native American Veteran Direct Loan (NADL) Program provides eligible Native American Veterans and their spouses the opportunity to use their Veterans Affairs (VA) home loan guaranty benefit on Federal trust land.

The VA provides home mortgages to eligible Native American Veterans to finance the purchase, construction, or improvement of homes on Federal Trust Land, or to refinance a prior NADL in order to reduce the interest rate.

Benefits of the NADL Program:

  • The lender is the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
  • No down payment is required
  • We make it easy to qualify
  • No Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) cost
  • $424,100 loan maximum limit in most areas; some high-cost counties have higher loan limits

How to Use the NADL Program:

To obtain a NADL, the law requires that the tribal government must have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. The MOU spells out the conditions under which the program will operate on its trust lands.
