First Lenders Selected for Heirs Property Relending Program
Heirs’ property is family land that has been passed down to descendants without a will or deed to prove ownership. The USDA Heir's Property Relending Program helps heirs formalize land ownership and succession issues that would prevent them from accessing USDA services. Three intermediary lenders have been approved for the program thus far, who will reloan funds to eligible heirs to resolve title issues by financing the purchase or consolidation of property interests and financing costs associated with a succession plan. Potential intermediary lenders, including cooperatives, credit unions and nonprofit organizations, are encouraged to apply.
