The fact your current loan may have been refinanced under the HARP program should have no bearing in and of itself for your to get a home equity line of credit.

A HARP loan is simply a new first mortgage that offered refinancing relief to borrows that were upside down (owed more than the home was worth). What you have is a conforming Fannie or Freddie conventional loan. That said, you should be able to obtain a second mortgage. The bigger question might be, with today's super low rates, does it make more sense to actually refinance into a new lower rate loan and pull out some equity at the same time.
