HUD Announces FHA Resource Center
The Federal Housing Administration has unveiled a new Resource Center, which will be the “first line of response” for most industry and public inquiries regarding FHA’s home mortgage insurance programs, processing and requirements.
In a May 1 Mortgagee Letter (2006-08), the Department of Housing and Urban Development said that the FHA Resource Center is intended to ensure timely, consistent and accurate answers to public inquiries, and that the Resource Center will also assist industry members who support FHA home mortgage insurance programs, such as real estate agents, housing counseling agencies, nonprofit organizations and local government agencies. The Resource Center started accepting inquiries on May 1, 2006.
