Upon the effective date of the Final Rule, if any organization that receives HUD Housing Counseling Program grant funds is determined to have used those grant funds in a manner that constitutes a material violation of applicable statutes and regulations, HUD shall require that the Participating Agency shall reimburse HUD the misused funds as well as return any unused or unobligated amounts, and the Participating Agency shall be ineligible to apply for or receive additional HUD Housing Counseling Program grant funds; HUD may pursue other remedies that may be available.
