Housing Counseling Certification: Register for Upcoming Webinar and Access HUD Exchange Resources
In December 2016, HUD published new housing counseling certification standards. The Housing Counseling Certification Requirements Final Rule implements statutory requirements that housing counseling required under or provided in connection with all HUD programs must be provided by HUD Certified Housing Counselors by August 1, 2020.
Organizations funded under a variety of HUD programs, such as CDBG, CDBG-DR, HOME, HTF, and NSP, are delivering housing counseling around the country. Organizations need to determine which of the services being delivered are considered housing counseling, and how they may need to comply with the final rule. To help housing counseling agencies and organizations funded under other HUD programs comply with the final rule, HUD has been collecting best practices, FAQs, and instructional pages. These resources are available on the HUD Exchange to help you navigate the certification process for your organization!
