USES AND USE RESTRICTIONS:

HUD insures lenders against loss on mortgage loans under other sections of the National Housing Act, e.g., Section 221(d)(3) or (d)(4), pursuant to Section 223(e). Claims are paid from the Special Risk Insurance Fund, but this is not a separate program. The determination to use Section 223(e) is at the discretion of HUD. These loans may be used to finance the purchase, repair, rehabilitation, and construction of housing in older, declining urban areas where conditions are such that certain normal eligibility requirements for mortgage insurance under a particular program cannot be met. The property must be an acceptable risk giving consideration to the need for providing adequate housing for low-and moderate-income families.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

Applicant Eligibility:   HUD-approved mortgages.

Beneficiary Eligibility:   For single family purposes, an individual or family is eligible to apply through HUD approved mortgages. Multifamily sponsorship is determined by applicable program requirements.

Credentials/Documentation:   For single family applications, documentation regarding the characteristics of the property and the qualifications of the mortgagor are assembled by the mortgage and submitted with the application. Documentation required for multifamily applications is determined by applicable program requirements. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-87.
