How do I get a specialized list of FHA-approved lenders?

You can locate FHA-approved lenders and their registered branches using the HUD Lender List Search at:  which allows you to create a list of FHA approved lenders in your area. 
The HUD Lender List Search is not an all-inclusive list of lenders currently participating in a particular HUD/FHA program.  For a specialized list of FHA-approved lenders you can file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
For details on how to file a FOIA request, please go to the FOIA web page at:
