If you are in a disaster zone with an active disaster declaration you should look for HUD CDBG-DR Grants before you look for loans if you are below 100% AMI.

If you must get a loan check with local lenders, local banks for loans not secured by VA, FHA, USDA, SBA, any lender that provides loans not secured by federal tax dollars can be reimbursed in other grant programs such as the HUD CDBG-DR Grant program.

Always research disaster recovery options.

If you are not in a disaster but are very low income make sure the $166 per months for 20 years is affordable today with the inflation rates so high. Do not extend debt burden that will pass to other family members.
