FHA Celebrates Homeownership Center Month
The month of June is designated by Presidential proclamation as National Homeownership Month. Although this distinction is celebrated in June of each year, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is committed to helping first-time and low- and moderate-income (including minority) homebuyers become homeowners every day of the year.
As a matter of fact, in fiscal year (FY) 2018, FHA insured more than one million mortgages for single family homes, and nearly 83 percent of those FHA purchase mortgages served first-time homebuyers. Additionally, FHA insured over 48,000 reverse mortgages in FY 2018 through its Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program, helping tens of thousands of seniors remain in their homes and age in place.
In continued celebration of National Homeownership Month, FHA’s Office of Single Family Housing is participating in a number of events and housing- and homeownership-related activities throughout June. Additionally, interested parties can access the 2019 National Homeownership Month website on hud.gov for further information.
