The current annual membership fee is a nominal $25 per household for as long as the Member is the Purchase Program and has a loan through NACA. There is also a nominal fee for credit report pulls refunded at closing by the lender.

Is there an income limit for NACA?

THERE ARE NO INCOME LIMITS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE NACA PROGRAM, EITHER HIGH OR LOW.

What credit score is needed for NACA?

NACA does not, however, consider credit scores as part of the application process. When it comes to credit scores, the bigger the better; 850 is a perfect credit score, and anything above 700 is a good credit rating. Most Americans score between 600 and 750, but NACA members typically score lower [source: Experian].

Hello miah2305, NACA loans are considered conventional, and the program was started partially to create an alternative to the outlandish PMI that FHA charges. Their PMI only serves to reduce your affordability and protect the investor on the loan, even though the premiums come out of your pocket.
