Qualified Participating Entities (QPE) Risk Sharing

Under this program HUD provides reinsurance on multifamily housing projects whose loans are originated, underwritten, serviced, and disposed of by qualified participating entities (QPEs) and/or its approved lenders.

The program encourages the development and preservation of affordable housing.

The
Section 542(b) program was originally designed as a pilot to test innovative mortgage insurance and reinsurance products to provide affordable multifamily housing through a partnership between HUD and QPEs, including Government Sponsored Enterprises, financial institutions, and the Federal Housing Finance Board.

Agency - Department of Housing and Urban Development

The Department of Housing and Urban Development's mission is to increase homeownership, support community development and increase access to affordable housing free from discrimination. HUD fulfills this mission through high ethical standards, management and accountability, and by forming partnerships with community organizations.

Program Accomplishments

In Fiscal Year 2007, HUD insured mortgages for 13 projects with 1,415 units, totaling $44.3 million units. It is estimated that the Department will insure the same number of mortgages in Fiscal Year 2008.

Uses and Use Restrictions

QPEs and/or its approved lenders may originate and underwrite affordable housing loans.

HUD's mortgage credit enhancements are used to support the underwriting and production strengths of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and other qualified Federal, State, and local public financial and housing institutions.

In the event of a default, the QPE will pay all costs associated with loan disposition and will seek reimbursement from HUD.

In most cases, the HUD risk share will be 50 percent.

The program provides a new insurance authority independent of the National Housing Act.
