Once approved to submit e-CBs can LI lenders submit paper binders, binders through FHA Catalyst, and electronic case binders through FHA Connection when requested?

No. LI lenders cannot alternate between paper, FHA Catalyst and FHA Connection electronic case binders.  Once approved, LI lenders must submit electronic case binders through FHA Connection.  The only exception being NOR resubmissions previously submitted by paper.
