30th anniv email header
The Love Funding team recently gathered in Boston to celebrate our 30th anniversary and discuss plans for the company's future. We enjoyed our time together and are proud of where we stand today as a top FHA lender; however, we recognize that our success means nothing without strong client relationships. So as a team, we put our heads together to identify measures to ensure that our clients keep coming back. We are streamlining internal processes, expediting underwriting procedures, simplifying loan documents and building out a loan portal to provide our clients with the very best in customer service.


We are also excited about the many changes happening at HUD, including a new 232 handbook to improve efficiency on the healthcare side and a detailed plan for the multifamily transformation. Stay tuned for more information, and in the meantime, let us know how we can better serve your needs. Let's start a conversation.

Healthcare Improvements
HUD recently rolled out a new 232 handbook to streamline healthcare loan processing nationwide. Love Funding underwriters attended training sessions to meet with the heads of the LEAN program and discuss the changes and improvements we would like to see. Here are some of the highlights:
  • HUD is actively seeking experienced borrowers and operators for construction projects.
  • HUD is streamlining reviews to achieve better consistency
  • HUD reaffirmed the use of market cap rates, but there is still a significant focus on in-place net operating income
Multifamily Improvements

HUD recently received approval from Congress to move forward with its plan to transform the Office of Multifamily Housing. The transformation, called Multifamily for Tomorrow, will roll out across the country over the next two years and include the following components: 

  • National workload sharing
  • Single underwriter model and risk-based processing in production
  • Account executive model in asset management
  • Streamlining the organizational structure in headquarters and in the field

These changes are expected to improve the overall customer experience, including better service, more efficient and consistent Multifamily operations and improvements in HUD's risk management processes. 

Mark Dellonte Weighs in on the LIHTC Program

Declining housing affordability has received a lot of attention over the past few years, and deservedly so. We've seen rising home prices across the country continue to chip away at Americans' ability to buy their own homes. Declining housing affordability has taken center stage in the national debate over whether it's a wise move to unwind Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored enterprises that back 90 percent of U.S. mortgages.


But while this challenge is well understood, declining rental affordability hasn't been as much of a hot-button issue. By 2020, more than one million apartment projects backed by low-income housing tax credits (LIHTCs) will come to the end of their compliance periods, making them eligible for a return to market-rate rents. This "LIHTC Ledge" threatens to exacerbate what is already a tenuous situation for the growing tide of renters who can't find affordable accommodations. Continue Reading.

Preserving Affordable Housing Nationwide

Love Funding has been heavily involved in the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program, and we recently closed a $17.5 million sub rehab LIHTC loan for Broadway Townhomes in Camden, New Jersey. This 175-unit townhouse community was the first moderate rehabilitation project approved under HUD's RAD program, which allows proven financing tools to be applied to preserve and upgrade at-risk public and assisted housing, and provides for a long-term Section 8 rental assistance contract. 


We are currently working with Public Housing Authorities across the nation to underwrite several other RAD projects. Learn More.
