Before sub-prime existed people with less then perfect credit relied on FHA mortgages to buy and refinance their homes. Now that the sub-prime mortgages may be a thing of the past people are again turning to FHA mortgages to finance there homes. During the week of February 8 2008 the FHA reached out to 850,000 at risk homeowners who have not been able to meet there current mortgage obligations by letter. These letters are being sent to homeowners who have already faced or are experiencing the first reset of their adjustable rate mortgages, and live within geographic locations that are currently subject to FHA loan limits nationwide. Currently, FHA can insure home loans valued between $200,160 and $362,790. Bipartisan legislation has passed both the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives that would increase the loan limits, allowing FHA to insure bigger mortgages in high-cost states. Once this bill is reconciled and signed by President Bush, approximately 250,000 more families could be helped this year at no cost to the taxpayer. The Bush Administration's Fiscal Year 2009 Budget seeks $38.5 billion for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which represents a $3.2 billion or nine percent increase over the President's proposed budget for FY 2008 and $1 billion more than HUD's current budget authority.

After speaking to this Florida mortgage Company (YA Mortgage) they said they are gearing up to help those homeowners with the help of FHA loan programs available through them.

One of the products that the FHA is implementing is the "FHA secure refinance" this particular product that the FHA has implemented is design especially for helping people avoid foreclosure and has been signed in by President George Bush. The FHA secure refinance product is expected to help roughly 240,000 families who currently face foreclosure.
