Housing Counseling FAQ
Q

If an agency that is approved to participate in HUD’s Housing Counseling Program provides mobility-related services as part of rental or homeownership housing counseling, could that rental or homeownership housing counseling be eligible for funding under HUD’s housing counseling NOFA?

A

The question of which activities are eligible for funding is dependent on the specific language of future NOFAs. However, in past HUD housing counseling NOFAs, rental counseling and homeownership counseling that met HUD’s Housing Counseling Program requirements, performed by counselors working for agencies approved to participate in HUD’s Housing Counseling Program, were activities eligible for reimbursement. If mobility-related services were part of rental or homeownership housing counseling that met HUD’s housing counseling program requirements, they would have been activities eligible for funding. As of August 1, 2020, the final compliance date, that rental or homeownership housing counseling would have to be provided by a HUD certified housing counselor.

As a reminder, agencies cannot charge multiple funding sources for the same service provided to the same client.
