I think you're referring to the FHA Secure loans....
"The bill passed the House with bipartisan support on a vote of 348-72. If passed by the Senate, the program would allow the Federal Housing Administration to back refinanced loans for an increasing number of borrowers who are delinquent on payments because rates are resetting from initial teaser levels.
FHASecure offers homeowners the chance to refinance into better loans. Assuming borrowers can meet the to-be-determined loan limit, there are five criteria for FHASecure eligibility:
1- A history of on-time mortgage payments before the borrower’s ARM teaser rates expired and loans reset;
2- Interest rates must have or will reset between June 2005 and December 2009;
3- Three percent cash or equity in the home;
4- A sustained history of employment; and
5- Sufficient income to make the mortgage payment"
This could mean additional work for FHA Roster Appraisers. Then again, the 5 criteria may eliminate the majority of borrowers who stopped paying their mortgage, or who don't have 3% equity, or who lost their job.
