FHA Back to Work Program

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released new Federal Housing Administration (FHA) lending guidelines for previous homeowners who lost their home due to economic factors outside of their control.

The FHA Back-to-Work program now allows homebuyers who have previously filed for bankruptcy, short sale, deed-in-lieu or foreclosure to reapply for mortgage financing in as little as one year after their economic hardship.

Advantages of the FHA Back-to-Work program

  • Ability to buy a home within one year of filing for bankruptcy, foreclosure, deed-in-lieu or short sale
  • Qualification requirements allow leeway for some negative credit marks
  • Low down payment options are available
