The Secretary shall establish terms and conditions to ensure that such loans are acceptable risks, taking into consideration the need for rehabilitation, the security for the loan and the ability of the borrower to repay the loan. The Secretary may establish the interest rate for loans under the model program, which shall include special interest rates for loans to borrowers with incomes below 80 percent of the area median income.
42 U.S. Code § 12804. Rehabilitation loans
(a) In general
(b) Condition of loans
(c) Additional restrictionsGuidelines for the model program may require that the property—
be located in an area that contains a substantial number of dwellings in need of rehabilitation;
the property 1 is in need of rehabilitation or concentrated code enforcement within a reasonable time, and the rehabilitation of such property is consistent with a local plan for rehabilitation or code enforcement.
 So in original. The words “the property” probably should not appear.
