Revisions to FHA Credit Watch Termination Initiative
Document Number: 06-852
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-01-30
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
On December 17, 2004, HUD published an interim rule implementing certain regulations for the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Credit Watch Termination Initiative. Under the initiative, FHA systematically reviews the early default and claim rates of mortgagees that have been approved to participate in the FHA single family mortgage insurance programs. Mortgagees with excessive default and claim rates are considered to be on Credit Watch status and, in cases of more severe performance deficiencies, HUD may terminate the mortgagee's loan origination approval authority. Credit Watch status constitutes a warning to a mortgagee that its default and claim rates are in excess of permissible levels and that failure to achieve improvement may lead to the termination of its origination approval agreement. The final rule follows publication of the December 17, 2004, interim rule, takes into consideration the public comments received on the interim rule, and makes no changes at this final rule stage.

Notice of HUD's Fiscal Year 2006 Notice of Funding Availability Policy Requirements and General Section to the SuperNOFA for HUD's Discretionary Programs
Document Number: 06-531
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-01-20
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This notice provides prospective applicants for HUD competitive funding with the opportunity to become familiar with the General Section to HUD's FY2006 SuperNOFA, in advance of publication of the FY2006 SuperNOFA. Publication of HUD's annual SuperNOFA is targeted for publication in early 2006. This early publication of the General Section is one of several steps that HUD is taking to improve the funding process for its grantee community. Early publication of the General Section will give prospective applicants additional time to become familiar with and address those provisions in the General Section, which constitute part of almost every application. HUD will publish changes to this General Section made after today's publication with the SuperNOFA. HUD will continue to require that applicants submit their applications electronically via Grants.gov. For FY2006, only the Continuum of Care will remain as a paper application process. It is HUD's intent to move the Continuum of Care to electronic application submittal in FY2007. All prospective applicants should take this time to carefully read the Federal Register Notice published on December 9, 2005 entitled ``Notice of Opportunity to Register Early for Electronic Submission of Grant Applications for HUD Funding Opportunities; Early Registration with Grants.gov,'' and register prior to the publication of the Program Sections of the FY2006 SuperNOFA. The early registration notice can be found on HUD's Web site at http://www.hud.gov/offices/ adm/grants/fundsavail.cfm. Continuum of Care applicants are advised to become familiar with the registration and submission procedures. Although HUD is not requiring electronic submission for the Continuum of Care this year, all the Federal grant-making agencies are pledging to make 75 percent of funding opportunities available on Grants.gov in FY2006. Therefore, Continuum of Care agencies would benefit from becoming familiar with the requirements so they do not limit their ability to get funding from sources other than HUD in FY2006.
