The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) recently announced it faces a $16B shortfall. FHA offers mortgage insurance to homebuyers and the projected shortfall comes as a result of homeowners delinquent on their mortgages. While the agency is funded by fees it charges to mortgage holders, it may for the first time be forced to ask the federal government for taxpayer assistance. Guest will discuss FHA practices that led to its current economic circumstances, what it’s doing about it and the potential of Congress to offer the Administration a bailout.
