How is the 203(h) program identified in FHA Connection?

Section 203(h) of the National Housing Act – Mortgage Insurance for Disaster Victims utilizes a special Program ID in the FHA Connection Case Number assignment screen to identify these mortgages.  The ADP code for Direct Endorsement Lenders on a 203(h) mortgage should be identified as a 703 ADP code.  There is a Program ID in the FHA Connection Case Number Assignment Screen drop down option which is required to be listed as “(02)- Disaster Housing” in order for the 203(h) mortgages to be properly identified in the FHA Connection system.
