APPLICATION AND AWARD PROCESS:
Pre-application Coordination:   The sponsor has an initial conference with the local HUD Multifamily Hub or Program Center to determine the preliminary feasibility of the project before a Site Appraisal and Market Analysis (SAMA) application (for new construction projects) or feasibility application (for substantial rehabilitation projects) is submitted. An environmental assessment is required for this program. This program is eligible for coverage under E.O. 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs." An applicant should consult the State office or official designated as the single point of contact for additional information on the process the State requires to be followed in applying for assistance, if the State has selected the program for review. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-102.

Application Procedure:   The sponsor submits an application for a SAMA or feasibility letter. Following HUD's approval and issuance of a SAMA or feasibility letter, the Firm Commitment application is submitted to the local HUD Multifamily Hub or Program Center for processing. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-110.

Award Procedure:   If the project meets program requirements, the local HUD Multifamily Hub or Program Center issues a commitment to the lender to insure the mortgage.

Deadlines:   Deadlines are established on a case-by-case basis by the local HUD Multifamily Hub or Program Center.

Range of Approval/Disapproval Time:   Processing time, will depend upon the degree of preparation by the sponsor, and HUD Multifamily Hub or Program Center workload.

Appeals:   If an application for mortgage insurance is denied, HUD will state the reasons for the denial. If reapplication is desired, the applicant may modify the application and reapply.

Renewals:   The term of a commitment to insure may be extended when more time is required to close the loan.
