FHA to Permit DACA Status Recipients

On February 20,2021, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) publicly announced that individuals classified under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are eligible to apply for an FHA mortgage. 

We would like to take the opportunity to remind our valued partners that MFA programs, including FHA loans, follow current underwriting guidelines. We encourage our participating lenders to present MFA’s down payment assistance programs as an option to help your mortgage loan applicants achieve homeownership.

Should you have questions, please contact an MFA homeownership representative at 505-843-6880.

Thank you for participating in MFA programs.
