Yes & domestic partnership doesn't matter.
With FHA you can receive gift funds for down payment from ANYONE, friend, family member, domestic partner, maybe even your cat if he or she has a bank account, I'm not exactly sure if it's limited to human donation.
It's OK if the donor of the funds is not on title or on the loan in the end.
Shoot me an email directly if you'd like to talk to me some more. I don't look back on this same Trulia thread for answers posted after mine.
