  • Eligible Mortgage Insurers 

    The WHEDA Advantage has a lower interest rate and lower monthly payments than most conventional loan products. Special underwriting guidelines and mortgage insurance premiums are available through WHEDA-approved mortgage insurance (MI) providers.

    When submitting applications to the MI company, be sure to properly identify the application as a WHEDA loan. This will ensure the MI company uses the correct underwriting guidelines and applies the correct pricing. Coverage requirements are:

    HFA Preferred Only:  Loan amounts exceeding 80% LTV; MI Company overlays apply
    Total annual qualifying income is ≤ 80% AMI* = Charter Level Coverage Total annual qualifying income is > 80% AMI* = Standard Coverage
    • 95.01 - 97% LTV = 18% coverage
    • 90.01 - 95% LTV = 16% coverage
    • 85.01 - 90% LTV = 12% coverage
    • 80.01 - 85% LTV = 6% coverage
    • 80% LTV and lower = Not required
    • 95.01% - 97.00% = 35% coverage
    • 90.01% - 95.00% = 30% coverage
