Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Guide (4430.G)

Multifamily published its revised Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Guide, which is intended to cut the time required to approve loan applications and to assure consistent application of program requirements and credit standards across all HUD processing offices. FHAā€™s new MAP Guide delegates more underwriting responsibility to approved ā€œMAP lendersā€ and includes all relevant guidance published by FHA since the MAP Guide was last updated in 2011.

This new Guide consolidates all necessary underwriting and program requirements in one document and addresses concerns raised by those seeking updated standards.

Below are links that allow users to download (a) REV-2 MAP Guide 4430G January 2016, Bookmarked release 1.1 (the ā€œBookmarked MAP Guideā€) and (b) an Overview and User Guide to the Bookmarked MAP Guide.

The Bookmarked MAP Guide contains various features that make this PDF document easier to use. The Bookmarked MAP Guide contains no new guidance or policy, but is simply a reformatted version of the REV-2 Guide.
