The Multifamily Housing Service Coordinators program assists elderly individuals and persons with disabilities, living in federally-assisted multifamily housing, to obtain needed supportive services from community agencies. Is this considered housing counseling that is required to be delivered by a HUD certified housing counselor?

No. However, if a 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 who wants to become a homeowner), the coordinator must refer the participant to agencies approved to participate in HUD’s Housing Counseling Program.
