Dear NAHMA Members,

If you are looking for the servicing Specialist for a specific property, you will find a complete and sortable list here.

The four regions and the contact information for each Regional Director for Multifamily Housing Field Operations Division are:

  • Western Region: (AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA, WY)

If you need information on a loan transaction currently in process, or have questions on a new transaction, the Production & Preservation Division (PPD) processes, underwrites, and closes all multifamily direct, preservation, and guaranteed loan transactions. PPD will support all the Multifamily Housing Programs, including 515, 538, Multifamily Preservation and Revitalization (MPR), prepayments, and preservation efforts. This division will also oversee Notice of Solicitation of Applications (NOSA) drafting and administration efforts for Farm Labor Housing, Housing Preservation Grants, MPR, technical assistance, and 515.
