How may assistance be used?
HUD insures lenders against loss on mortgage loans under other sections of the National Housing Act, e.g., Section 221(d)(3) or (d)(4), pursuant to Section 223(e). Claims are paid from the Special Risk Insurance Fund, but this is not a separate program. The determination to use Section 223(e) is at the discretion of HUD. These loans may be used to finance the purchase, repair, rehabilitation, and construction of housing in older, declining urban areas where conditions are such that certain normal eligibility requirements for mortgage insurance under a particular program cannot be met. The property must be an acceptable risk giving consideration to the need for providing adequate housing for low-and moderate-income families.
