HUD-184 Guaranteed loans offer Native Americans low down payments and other flexibilities. Fannie Mae purchases HUD-184 loans from lenders, and you can learn more about them here.
On December 7, Fannie Mae implemented policy changes expanding homeownership education loan requirements. To receive the $75 Framework course fee waiver, borrowers must register through the new course link https://educate.frameworkhomeownership.org or https://homeready.frameworkhomeownership.org. Borrowers registering via other URLs may be charged the non-refundable $75 fee. For more information about these and other homeownership education changes, click here.
Fannie Mae works with lenders, Native American Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs), tribal governments and their Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHE), government entities, and Native American Housing Coalitions to increase mortgage financing opportunities for Native American Communities both on and off tribal trust and restricted lands.
Whether you’re using a HUD-184 or non-government loan products for tribal trust lands, Fannie Mae has you covered. Our suite of options provides Native American lenders, tribes and homeowners options to find the loan that’s right for them.
These tribes have signed a memorandum of understanding with Fannie Mae to make our mortgage products available on their lands.

Loans for Manufactured Housing
Lack of inventory can be challenging for many borrowers looking to buy a home on tribal lands. Fannie Mae offers several financing options for manufactured housing (MH) titled as real estate to suit a variety of homebuyers. We offer financing for traditional MH, as well as MH Advantage™, which provides affordable home loans for manufactured housing that more closely resembles site-built homes. Learn more
