Due to the lapse in Congressional Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is closed. This website is supported by a cooperative agreement funded under a prior appropriation. Current functions will remain operational but no new functions will be added during the lapse in appropriations. For more information, see HUD Contingency Plan for Possible Lapse in Appropriations.

A disclosure form should disclose any financial relationships or partnerships that the agency has with servicers or other parties, and should inform the client that he or she is not under any obligation to use the products or services of the agency or its partners. It must state that the client is free to choose a product or service or abstain from doing so, and that receiving housing counseling services from the agency is not contingent on the use of any product or service.
