SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The California Department of Veterans Affairs said it has increased the loan limits in the Cal-Vet mortgage program for the first time since October 1989.

A new law mandates that Cal-Vet loans can be made for up to 90% of a county's median home-purchase price, or $170,000, whichever is higher. The previous limit was $125,000 statewide.
