The Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Guide is HUD’s manual for FHA-insured multifamily loans. The MAP Guide provides guidance for HUD staff, lenders, third-party consultants, borrowers, and other industry partners. Topics include mortgage insurance program descriptions, borrower and lender eligibility requirements, application requirements, underwriting standards for all technical disciplines and construction loan administration requirements. It 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. The most recent version was issued in January 2016.
