L. 110–343), the Department of the Treasury has implemented several aspects of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Among these components was a voluntary foreclosure prevention program—the Making Home Affordable (MHA) program, under which the Department used TARP capital to lower the mortgage payments of qualifying borrowers. The Treasury did this through agreements with mortgage servicers (Servicer Participation Agreements, or SPAs) to modify loans on their systems. Pursuant to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Pub. L. 114–113), the MHA program terminated on December 31, 2016, except with respect to certain loan modification applications made before such date. The MHA program has several subcomponents: HAMP (Home Affordable Modification Program), 2MP (Second Lien Modification Program), HAFA (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives) and FHA (Federal Housing Administration)/RD (Rural Development) HAMP. Though the MHA program has terminated, there is some data reporting that will continue through December 2023 for incentive payment and compliance purposes.
