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

If we counsel a client monthly and bill the first session to the comprehensive housing counseling grant as initial and the second session as a follow-up, when can we put them through for funding again? Does it have to be six months after the follow-up appointment or should there be six months between appointments?

An agency may charge time against the grant for counseling a client even if it is done on multiple occasions during the grant period. A client file should accurately document each session or work completed for a client and state the reason for the follow-up or need to receive periodic counseling.
