SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

HUD's multifamily housing mortgage insurance regulation at 24 CFR 207.254 provides as follows:

Notice of future premium changes will be published in the Federal Register. The Department will propose MIP changes for multifamily mortgage insurance programs and provide a 30-day public comment period for the purpose of accepting comments on whether the proposed changes are appropriate.

Under this regulation, HUD is required to publish a notice for public comment only when there are premium “changes.” Since HUD is not seeking to implement any premium changes for FY 2011 for the multifamily mortgage insurance programs, health care facilities, and hospital insurance programs listed in this notice, a notice for public comment is not required. HUD is issuing this notice to ensure clarity on the appropriate MIPs charged for FY 2011, and is not seeking public comments.

II. Low-Income Housing Tax Credits

MIP rates for many FHA mortgage insurance programs depend on whether or not the sponsor is combining low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC) with the FHA-insured loan. The LIHTC program is an indirect Federal subsidy used to finance the development of affordable rental housing for low-income households.

III. MIPs for FHA's Mortgage Insurance Programs for FY2011

In the chart below, this notice announces the MIPs which will be in effect during FY 2011 for the multifamily housing health care facilities, and hospital mortgage insurance programs-authorized under the National Housing Act (12 U.S.C. 1713 et seq.). The multifamily housing programs are administered by FHA's Office of Multifamily Housing Programs. The health care facilities and the hospital insurance programs are administered by FHA's Office of Healthcare Programs. The programs of these offices are listed separately on the chart.

Credit Subsidy

This notice also announces that a credit subsidy obligation continues to be required for the three sections of the National Housing Act listed below. However, if the mortgagor's equity is produced from LIHTC for the programs authorized under section 221(d)(3) or section 241(a) of the National Housing Act, a credit subsidy obligation will not be required. For the loans requiring a credit subsidy obligation, the program office inserts a special clause into the firm commitment or an invitation pertaining to a Site Appraisal and Market Analysis (SAMA)/Feasibility/Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) letter. The clause states that the firm commitment is contingent upon availability of funds.

  • Section 221(d)(3) new construction/substantial rehabilitation for nonprofit/cooperatives.
  • Section 223(d) operating loss loans for both apartments and health care facilities.
  • Section 241(a) supplemental loans for additions or improvements for apartments only.

The mortgage insurance premiums to be in effect for FHA firm commitments issued or reissued in FY 2011 are shown in the chart below.
