I think I saw you post a question elsewhere for USDA.  For USDA it is 620.

On a conventional conforming loans ($417,000 or below) 740 + will get the best rate, and a few Investors give even better at 750+. On FHA a 720+ credit score will be best rate, though only slight increase between 640-720 but even higher increase between 620-640. A few Investors require 660 credit score min. on FHA and Mortgage Insurance co. on conventional loans are typically requiring 660-680+ on loans above 80%.

720+ will get you the best rate.  Why would you want to pay a higher rate than necessary?  Simply spend the 40+ hours required to learn how to raise your FICO score to 720+

most lenders will want 640. Technically 580 is about the lowest but few lenders go to that level.
