Title of Proposal: Lender Qualifications for Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP).
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0541.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) was initiated by the Department in May 2000. MAP is a procedure that permits approved lenders to prepare, process, and submit loan applications for Federal Housing Administration (FHA) multifamily mortgage insurance. An FHA-approved multifamily Lender wishing to participate in MAP must submit a MAP application package so that HUD may determine whether or not it meets the additional qualifications required of a MAP Lender. The Quality Control Plan is now a required exhibit in the Lender application package. Current MAP Lenders will also be required to submit Quality Control Plans.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: None.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: The annual number of respondents is 25 for new MAP Lender approval applications, and 114 for existing MAP Lenders submitting Quality Control Plans. The hours per response is 20 hours for the MAP Lender application, and 10 hours for the Quality Control Plan. The total estimated annual burden hours is 1,640.
Status of the proposed information collection: Reinstatement with change of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired.Start Signature
