How do the HECM (Reverse Mortgage) or 203(k) filters work on the hud.gov Lender List web page?

The HECM and 203(k) check boxes on the Lender List web page are filters that limit a search to only those FHA-approved lending institutions that have originated either a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) or 203(k) mortgage insured by FHA within the past 12 months.

The filters were set up to give consumers a shorter list of lenders who are more likely to be taking loan applications for either HECM or 203(k) loans.
