USDA Certificate of Elegibility



    I have a Certificate of Elegibility that expired two weeks before the goverment shutdown, I send a letter to get an extention,couple days later a got a letter from the USDA office sayin a got the extention for only one week because they may be furloughed if the goverment continue with the shutdown

   So the goverment shut down happened, now i dont know were I stand. Do I have to re-apply or I can use the one I have, I just found a nice home and I would like to make an offer. I live in Sutton Ma and Im using the USDA office in Holden Ma.

Thank you so much for your help.

Re: USDA Certificate of Elegibility

What is a USDA certificate of eligibility? Is that for the direct loan program?


I would guess that you have to contact the same people you did to get the extension.
