On Nov. 15, 2021, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released its fiscal year 2021 report to Congress regarding the financial status of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund. In the statement, HUD emphasized the critical role of FHA in the U.S. housing market and its mission of providing access to credit to expand first-time and low-and-moderate-income homeownership.
Recursion data was cited several times in the report, notably with regards to first-time homeownership, the share of loans originated under $70K, and the Agency share of total market output. Recursion is proud that HUD recognizes Recursion’s powerful analytic capabilities in supporting FHA’s “essential role in advancing homeownership”.
*In FY 2021, the share of first-time homebuyers of total purchase mortgages insured by FHA reached a new high of 84.61%, almost 40% higher than that of non-FHA originations.
