Due to the lapse in Congressional Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is closed. This website is supported by a cooperative agreement funded under a prior appropriation. Current functions will remain operational but no new functions will be added during the lapse in appropriations. For more information, see HUD Contingency Plan for Possible Lapse in Appropriations.

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.
