SERVICING GUIDE REVISIONS: CONTACT SERVICING

Home Ownership Fune (HOF) and Home Ownership Assistance Fund (HOAF)

Because the HOF and HOAF programs are inactive and AHFC does not anticipate reactivation in the near future, most, but not all servicing guidelines for these programs have been deleted. Section 12001 contains procedures for obtaining HOF loan payoffs and information about excess subsidy payment. Should these programs be reintroduced, AHFC will write and distribute new servicing guidelines.

ALCS Reporting

(Sections 11002, 11003, and 11004)

Servicing Guide Sections 11002 - Custodial Accounting, 11003 - Cash Remittances and 11004 Actual Loan Collection System are being revised to reflect recent changes made to the transaction reporting cutoff and due dates and the termination of Ginnie Mae and Freddie Mac pools.
