The Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD)/Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) Office of
Multifamily Housing Programs (MFH) has developed a web-based portal
for FHA-approved multifamily lenders to submit applications for FHA
multifamily mortgage insurance to HUD electronically. The FHA
Catalyst: Multifamily Application Portal (“FHA Catalyst”), is
anticipated to be released in fall 2020 and will aid in the
collection of information for FHA multifamily mortgage insurance
program applications. United States Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD) Federal Housing Administration (FHA) 24 CFR
202.5, 207, 213, 220, 221, 231, 241, and 266 authorize HUD/FHA to
collect information and conduct operations under these programs.
FHA Catalyst will allow FHA-approved multifamily lenders to submit
electronic applications for FHA multifamily mortgage insurance and
related documents to HUD through a web-based portal, and HUD staff
will be able to receive and download the documents from the portal.
The system is designed to streamline existing processes for
collecting information to administer FHA multifamily mortgage
insurance programs; no new information will be collected as a
result of FHA Catalyst.
