During each 12-month period, the participating agency must provide housing counseling to at least 30 clients. This minimum number of clients applies to clients served under all funding sources. Agencies that offer only housing counseling services limited to reverse mortgages, including home equity conversion mortgages (HECMs), are exempt from this requirement.
