HPC on the State of FHA’s Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 15, 2021


Washington, D.C. – The Housing Policy Council (HPC) released the following:


“HPC commends HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge for her stewardship of the Federal Housing Administration’s primary mortgage insurance fund which, according to the actuarial assessment released today, remains in strong financial health. HPC also applauds Secretary Fudge’s decision to preserve the current Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) levels and to delay further consideration of a MIP adjustment until more is known about the outcomes of the FHA loans currently in forbearance or seriously delinquent. Secretary Fudge has demonstrated effective leadership during a time of tremendous challenge, directing the agency to respond quickly and appropriately to the financial hardship faced by consumers and to work closely and collaboratively with key stakeholders, including mortgage servicers and consumer advocates, to assist homeowners in need. FHA’s actions are contributing to a strong national recovery. HPC looks forward to continuing to engage with FHA to expand and enhance programs to reach socially disadvantaged segments of the population, to align program rules and practices with market standards, and to advance the important technology modernization activities underway.”
