What is the Lender Electronic Assessment Portal (LEAP)?

The Lender Electronic Assessment Portal (LEAP) is a one-stop shop for all Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Lender Approval and Recertification activities. This includes: 
  •  Managing lender Institution and Branch profile information 
  •  Maintaining other lender data such as Cash Flow Accounts 
  •  Submitting requests and receiving notifications 
  •  Completing the annual Recertification process.  
LEAP replaced the Lender Assessment Sub-System (LASS) for lender and Independent Public Accountant (IPA) submission of financial information, as well as the Lender Approval and Cash Flow Account Setup sections of FHA Connection. 
For more information on LEAP and accessing the LEAP User Manual please visit the LEAP Information web page located in the Approval & Renewals section on the FHA Lender web page available at https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/housing/sfh/lender/
