How may assistance be used?
Section 241(a) insures lenders against loss on loans made either (1) to finance additions and improvements of multifamily housing projects, nursing homes, hospitals and group practice facilities already subject to HUD/FHA insured mortgages or mortgages held by HUD, or (2) to finance energy conservation improvements. The proceeds of a loan involving an insured nursing home, hospital or a group practice facility may also be used to purchase equipment to be used in the operation of such nursing home or facility.

Where the project is covered by a mortgage held by the Secretary the principal amount of the loan shall be in an amount acceptable to the Secretary.
