HUD 241(a) Supplemental Loans

HUD 241(a) Supplemental Financing for Apartment Buildings and Multifamily Properties

If you already have a HUD multifamily loan, that's great, but what if you want to make improvements to the property? Well, HUD has the perfect solution for you. A HUD 241(a) loan is specifically designed for current HUD multifamily borrowers who want to upgrade an existing property, and can be used for expanding current buildings, buying new safety equipment, or even increasing a building's energy efficiency. In addition, HUD 241(a) loans are non-recourse and fully assumable (with HUD/FHA approval.)
