The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) guidance outlined in Mortgagee Letter 2019-06 will be effective for loans with FHA case numbers assigned on or after July 23, 2019 (per FHA ML-2019-07).
Minnesota Housing will be updating the FHA DPA Commitment Form to accommodate the FHA guidance. The updated form (version date 7/23/19) must be used for Minnesota Housing downpayment loans with first mortgage loans that have FHA case numbers assigned on or after July 23, 2019.

What changed on this form?
  • Page 1: Revised the first paragraph
  • Page 2: Added a legal opinion from our legal counsel stating we are a Governmental Entity operating within our jurisdiction.
On July 23, we will update the Minnesota Housing loan commitment system and website with the revised FHA DPA Commitment Form. For lenders that use their own system to generate loan documents, we have provided the updated form to your document management contacts and document management companies.
