Welcome to the Southwest Mortgagee Advisory Council (SWAC) website! SWAC is a non-profit industry trade group composed of FHA Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Lenders and third-party firms who conduct HUD business within Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana and Arkansas. Many of these same lenders also finance Residential Health Care Facilities under HUD’s Section 232 program (using HUD’s LEAN process). SWAC was formed to strengthen the business relationship between the HUD Program Centers, Lenders and third-party providers. It provides a forum for discussion of MAP and LEAN issues and the improvement and promotion of the HUD MAP and LEAN application processing of the respective Mortgage Insurance Programs.
