Are all loan types eligible for the Home Affordable Refinance and Home Affordable Modification Programs? What about FHA/VA/USDA loans?
The HARP option is currently available only for loans owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Most conventional mortgages, however, including those owned by lenders or in securities, are eligible for HAMP. Any loan type may be considered for a FHA Hope for Homeowners (H4H) refinance. Treasury requires servicers to consider H4H at the same time they are evaluating a borrower for HAMP. Loans insured or guaranteed by FHA are currently being modified under guidelines similar to HAMP, and may soon be eligible for the same borrower and servicer incentives.
