FHA Aims to Lower MIP, Reduce Lender Overlays

FHA last week launched a two-pronged effort called Blueprint for Access to improve the availability of credit to borrowers seeking the agency’s federally backed loans. The first prong is a pilot program called Homeowners Armed With Credit (HAWK) to reduce the upfront and annual mortgage insurance premiums for borrowers who participate in housing counseling; the second is a simplification of rules to make it less necessary for lenders to impose borrower standards above what FHA requires.
