The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) revised the Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Guide, released in December and recently updated March 19. The revised guide is now in effect. The revisions incorporate policy changes from the last four years and set out HUD’s current policies on FHA-insured lending.

What does the revised MAP Guide hold for multifamily borrowers of FHA-insured loans? And how will the revisions impact FHA financing for affordable housing moving forward?

On Thursday, April 22, join our panel for an overview of the revisions and what they mean for FHA borrowers. The panel will highlight changes in the MAP Guide that may be of particular interest to borrowers including:

  • FHA & LIHTCs
  • The “3-year rule” & using FHA-insured lending on newly constructed projects
  • FHA’s accessibility (UFAS) requirements
  • “Heavy” 223(f) vs. 221(d)(4) requirements
  • Closing protocols and requirements
