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.

Yes. All counselors on the Roster must receive Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) training within two years of getting on the Roster and every two years thereafter. The counselor must submit a certificate of training as proof. All counselors must pass the HECM exam every three years from the date they get on the Roster and every three years thereafter.
