Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Guide
The Multifamily Accelerated Processing Guide, the “MAP Guide,” is comprehensive instruction and requirements for the origination, underwriting and endorsement (“closing”) of HUD-FHA insured mortgages for multifamily properties. The MAP Guide describes how lenders qualify for participation and how lenders apply for mortgage insurance including the qualifications and roles, both financial and professional, of all participants. The 2020 MAP Guide updates the prior 2016 MAP Guide and includes all relevant guidance published by FHA since the publication of the 2016 MAP Guide. The Related Documents links below provide access to certain documents necessary for users of the MAP Guide. See the Transmittal for transition provisions from the 2016 MAP Guide to the 2020 MAP Guide as well as a summary of key changes and revisions to format and reader aides. The 2016 MAP Guide has been archived but remains available at the archive link.
