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.

What if I am both a HECM counselor and an Application Coordinator for my agency? How do I register?

An Application Coordinator can also be a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) Roster counselor. In this case the counselor would apply to the Roster first and then apply to the FHA Connection for a user ID as an Application Coordinator and counselor. If you are both a HECM Roster Counselor and Application Coordinator, you cannot validate your employment. In those situations, an agency should have another Application Coordinator who would be able to validate your employment. The Application Coordinator does not have to be a HECM Roster counselor.
