Changes in Certain Multifamily Mortgage Insurance Premiums and Regulatory Waiver for the 542(c) Risk-Sharing Program
On January 28, 2016, HUD published a notice announcing proposed changes to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Mortgage Insurance Premiums (MIPs) for certain FHA Multifamily Housing Insurance programs, for commitments issued or reissued beginning April 1, 2016, and solicited public comments on the announced changes. This document announces that the FY 2016 MIP changes for certain FHA Multifamily Housing Insurance programs, including the 542(b) and 542(c) Risk- Sharing programs, proposed on January 28, 2016, are being implemented for commitments issued or reissued beginning April 1, 2016. These new MIP changes reflect the health of the FHA Multifamily portfolio, simplify the rate structure, and demonstrate HUD's commitment to promote its mission initiatives. The MIP rates for mortgage insurance programs under FHA's Office of Healthcare Programs, including health care facilities and hospital insurance programs, are not changed. This document also addresses the public comments received in response to the proposed MIP changes. Lastly, this MIP document also provides a regulatory waiver for the 542(c) Risk-Sharing program to participate in the FY 2016 MIP changes for commitments issued or reissued beginning April 1, 2016, for the remainder of FY 2016 and for FY 2017.
