FEDERAL AGENCY:

HOUSING, DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

AUTHORIZATION:

Housing and Community Development Act of 1992, Section 542(b), Public Law 102-550, 12 U.S.C. 1701; Public Law 106-377. HUD's fiscal year 2001 Appropriations Bill amended Section 235 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 to extend the 542 Risk Sharing Program to a permanent multifamily insurance program.
OBJECTIVES: Click here for help!
Under this program HUD provides reinsurance on multifamily housing projects whose loans are originated, underwritten, serviced, and disposed of by qualified participating entities (QPEs) and/or its approved lenders. The program encourages the development and preservation of affordable housing. The Section 542(b) program was originally designed as a pilot to test innovative mortgage insurance and reinsurance products to provide affordable multifamily housing through a partnership between HUD and QPEs, including Government Sponsored Enterprises, financial institutions, and the Federal Housing Finance Board.

QPEs and/or its approved lenders may originate and underwrite affordable housing loans.

In the event of a default, the QPE will pay all costs associated with loan disposition and will seek reimbursement from HUD. In most cases, the HUD risk share will be 50 percent. The program provides a new insurance authority independent of the National Housing Act.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

Applicant Eligibility:   Eligible mortgagors include investors, builders, developers, public entities, and private nonprofit corporations or associations may apply to a qualified QPE and/or its lender.

Beneficiary Eligibility:   Individuals, families, and property owners may be eligible for affordable housing.
