What are the HUD programs on the list where a family assisted under a HUD program is referred to Housing Counseling, by a grantee or Subgrantee of the HUD program?
Date Published: December 2016
Any HUD program where a grantee or Subgrantee makes a housing counseling referral to a family assisted under the HUD program must make the referral to an agency approved to participate in HUD’s Housing Counseling program consistent with § 5.111. Examples include the Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS); Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency Program (ROSS), and Multifamily Housing Service Coordinators program. If an FSS coordinator, ROSS service coordinator, or Multifamily Housing Service Coordinator refers a participant to housing counseling (e.g., rental housing counseling to help participants move to market-rate rental housing, or homeownership counseling for a participant whose goal is to become a homeowner), the coordinator must refer the participant to agencies approved to participate in HUD’s Housing Counseling program.
