 Be a Resource For Your Borrowers 

Become an IHDA Lender

We work with more than 165 lenders across the State of Illinois. Join our team! 

We require lenders to be:

  • Licensed to do business in Illinois

  • In good standing with their primary regulators

  • Direct originators (brokers are not permitted)

  • Able to close and fund the loan in the lender’s own name

  • Approved with U.S. Bank Home Mortgage

There is no charge to become an IHDA Mortgage lender. IHDA does not review home purchase loans until after closing. There is no significant impact to the closing schedule.


Apply by completing all items on the onboarding application.
