Native American Veterans: Improvements to VA Management Could Help Increase Mortgage Loan Program Participation, Report to Congressional Requesters [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Highlights: "In 1992, Congress required VA [Department of Veterans Affairs] to establish a direct loan program to help Native American veterans finance homes on certain types of land that can be difficult to use as collateral for conventional mortgage loans. This could include, for example, land held in trust for Native Americans by the federal government. Members of Congress, advocacy organizations, and other stakeholders have raised questions about the effectiveness of VA's administration of NADL [Native American Direct Loan] and outreach efforts. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review the NADL program. This report examines the extent of lending to eligible veterans and program management and operations."
