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.

How frequently does HUD conduct Performance reviews?

Date Published: August 2014

For Local Housing Counseling Agencies (LHCAs) and Multi-State Organizations (MSOs), the reviews typically are based on the expiration date of the current unconditional certificate. There may be some additional factors that could determine another timeframe (e.g., a merger of any agency).

For State Housing Finance Agency (SHFAs), the reviews are typically scheduled two or three years after the previous Performance Review.

A new standard policy for HUD performance reviews of Intermediaries is currently being developed by the Office of Housing Counseling (OHC). Additional information will be available regarding the Intermediary form/process in the near future.
