Title: Updating and Improving Direct Single Family Housing (SFH) Programs 

Rural Housing Service is revising 7 CFR part 3550, which outlines the requirements of the Direct Single Family Housing (SFH) programs. Since the reengineering and reinvention of the direct SFH program in 2003, revisions to make improvements have been limited. Through this action, the Rural Housing Service will reduce regulatory burdens in 7 CFR part 3550, enhance program delivery and customer service, promote consistency with the guaranteed SFH loan program where feasible, and reflect current housing market conditions and mortgage loan practices.
