FHA-approved Multifamily lenders can use the Multifamily functions of the FHA Connection. Below are links to essential information on accessing and using the FHA Connection.  
Register for the FHA Connection: The lender designates two to four employees to administer the user IDs of its employees. They must register as FHA Connection Application Coordinators. Once established, other employees can register as standard users. To register, click here and follow the instructions for the FHA-approved Lender user type.
  Note: If an FHA Connection user ID was issued for Single Family applications, the same user ID can be used for Multifamily applications. The lender's FHA Connection Application Coordinator simply grants the user the appropriate Multifamily authorizations (see below).
FHA Connection User ID Administration: The FHA Connection Application Coordinators grant the lender's users access to FHA Connection functions. See User Administration [PDF] in the FHA Connection Guide and Frequently Asked Questions - ID Maintenance.
Sign on to the FHA Connection: The Application Coordinator notifies employees of their user IDs. Once an FHA Connection user ID is issued, the user can sign on to the FHA Connection. The password entered on the FHA Connection registration form is used to initially sign on to the FHA Connection and must be changed immediately after signing on. If the password is forgotten and must be reset, it is reset to the last six digits of the user's Social Security Number. See Signing on/off of the FHA Connection [PDF] in the FHA Connection Guide.
FHA Connection Orientation: To get acquainted with the FHA Connection environment, see Site Map [PDF] and Using the FHA Connection [PDF] in the FHA Connection Guide.
