Qualified Participating Entities (QPE) Risk Sharing

Under this program HUD provides reinsurance on multifamily housing projects whose loans are originated, underwritten, serviced, and disposed of by qualified participating entities (QPEs) and/or its approved lenders.

The program encourages the development and preservation of affordable housing.

The Section 542(b) program was originally designed as a pilot to test innovative mortgage insurance and reinsurance products to provide affordable multifamily housing through a partnership between HUD and QPEs, including Government Sponsored Enterprises, financial institutions, and the Federal Housing Finance Board.

Agency - Department of Housing and Urban Development

The Department of Housing and Urban Development's mission is to increase homeownership, support community development and increase access to affordable housing free from discrimination. HUD fulfills this mission through high ethical standards, management and accountability, and by forming partnerships with community organizations.
