In July 2009, FHA launched the FHA-Home Affordable Modification Program to provide assistance to borrowers to modify their mortgages to provide more affordable payments. Under Chapter VI of the MHA Handbook, FHA-insured first lien mortgage loans that are modified under FHA-HAMP are eligible for certain incentive payments under HAMP.
The incentive eligibility guidelines for the Treasury FHA-HAMP are detailed further in the servicer documents listed below.
Chapter VI of the MHA Handbook provides guidance to FHA servicers for adoption and implementation of Treasury FHA-HAMP. Provides pay-for performance incentive compensation to borrowers and pay-for-success incentive compensation to servicers for FHA insured first lien mortgages that are modified, on or after August 15, 2009, pursuant to FHA's Mortgagee Letters 2009-23, 2009-35, 2009-39, 2010-04, 2010-11 and 2012-22.
Making Home Affordable Handbook v5.0 - The MHA Handbook will be updated periodically to include additional guidance on related programs.
