Background and Discussion:

Job No 20/0132 New Loan Application, Origination, Underwriting, and Servicing System Software for the Harris County Community Services Department. The automated software tool will make it easier to scale loan servicing capacity for Community Services housing programs. The entire system is a powerful, flexible, and simple to use tool. The loan servicing software will help CSD to streamline the complete lifecycle for managing large portfolios without introducing more labor cost while ensuring the highest levels of compliance, quality, and efficiency.

 

Expected Impact: 

Community Services Department’s housing programs will have the automated software tool needed to process new loan applications for low- and moderate-income families within Harris County.  Disaster Recovery funds will be used to purchase this software.

 

Alternative Options:  

Community Services Department’s housing programs will not have the software tool essential to underwrite and process new housing loans; therefore, not being able to assist low to moderate income families with the loan process.
