OMB Approval Number: 2502-New. Type of Request: New. Form Number: N/A. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: FHA is developing a new FHA Single Family Policy Handbook (SF Handbook). The handbook is a single, consolidated and authoritative source for FHA Single family Housing Policy. The handbook will make it easier to do business with FHA Single Family by: • Consolidating policy into one Handbook • Using simple, more directive language • Aligning the flow of the handbook to the lender/mortgage process. Without feedback, FHA’s final Handbook would lack critical revisions or changes that would improve its usefulness. In particular, obtaining feedback permits FHA to have a handbook that helps lenders and appraisers quickly find needed information and reduces the need for them to obtain clarification and direction on existing and changing policy.
