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.
Housing Counseling FAQ

My housing counseling agency is offering courses in many subject areas. Does HUD have a requirement for the length, for example, number of hours or days, for each one-on-one counseling session or group workshop?

Date Published: September 2016

HUD does not approve or disapprove courses offered by housing counseling agencies. The length and time of courses or workshops may be set by each individual housing counseling agency, with the exception of Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) counseling sessions, which must meet the course and session length requirements of Handbook 4235.1, 7610.1 REV-5, and relevant Notices and Mortgage letters, when applicable.
