The draft FHA Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Guide was posted on February 27, 2015 for stakeholder review and feedback.
FHA has issued an updated Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Guide. Revisions incorporated in the draft MAP Guide can be categorized into three main areas:
- Technical corrections and edits to the current version, based on operational experience;
- Integration of previously published policy (e.g. Mortgagee Letters, Housing Notices, Memos, and less formal guidance) issued since 2011, operationalized to be standard practice; Incorporation of the significant organizational and operational business model changes associated with the Multifamily for Tomorrow transformation initiative; and,
- Introduction of proposed policy revisions for public discussion. Please note that these policy revisions are for discussion purposes only, and based on feedback received, may or may not be included in the final MAP Guide.
