The agency's Housing Counseling Work Plan must specify how the agency addresses the requirement that the agency must cover the entire process of homeownership for clients that receive Homeownership Counseling.

Some examples of how the agency may meet the requirement are:

  • The agency may provide group education classes that cover those topics that the client could attend.
  • The counselors may provide handouts, links to relevant online information, and other reference materials to the client that cover the other topics.
