HUD’s Fiscal Years 2016-2017 Comprehensive Housing Counseling Grant Program NOFA allowed for training, testing and certification on housing counseling topics, including, but not limited to, preparation of counselors to satisfy HUD housing counseling training, testing and certification requirements as eligible expenses. In future NOFAs, HUD intends to treat costs associated with certification as an eligible Housing Counseling Comprehensive Grant program expense, subject to statutory authorization and funding appropriation.
