On July 26, the FDIC released an update to its Affordable Mortgage Lending Guide, Part II: State Housing Finance Agencies (Guide) and Quick Links: State Links for Housing Finance Agencies. The Guide provides information for community banks about the programs and products offered by each State Housing Finance Agency (HFAs), and discusses, among others things: (i) first-lien mortgage products; (ii) down payment and closing cost assistance; (iii) mortgage tax credit certificates; and (iv) mortgage lending homeownership education and counseling programs. Updates to the Guide include program updates to 40 out of the 54 HFAs and changes to the State HFA Product Matrix. A review of Part II, completed July 1, 2017, reflects the FDIC’s commitment to provide the most up-to-date borrower and loan criteria information available.
