The St. Petersburg Regional Loan Center (RLC) is one of eight VA regional loan centers (RLCs) administering VA’s Home Loan Guaranty program, which helps Veterans obtain mortgage loans from private lenders by guaranteeing a portion of the loan against loss. In administering VA Home Loan Guaranty benefits, the RLC is the direct contact for the lending, appraising, and building communities and for Veterans with questions or concerns about their home loan benefit. The RLC trains and oversees the program’s private-sector stakeholders and conducts outreach to the housing and Veteran communities. RLC staff also work with loan servicers to help Veterans avoid foreclosure and assist service-disabled Veterans with applying for VA’s Specially Adapted Housing benefit.
We serve the estimated 2.3 million Veterans in Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida as well as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
VA now offers online Staff Appraisal Reviewer training and related resources.
Resources are available to help appraisers, lenders, real estate professionals, and servicers better serve Veterans.
