SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- The Federal Housing Administration has exhausted its capital reserves and is currently running at a deficit of $13.5 billion, The Wall Street Journal reported late Thursday, citing an independent audit. The FHA, which is expected to release the audit on Friday, is the arm of the Department of Housing and Urban Development that insures home mortgages. The audit is expected to show the FHA's reserves were not enough to cover losses on $1.1 trillion in guaranteed loans, and that the agency will need taxpayer funding for the first time in 78 years, according to the Journal.
