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.

What does HUD consider an individual household?

Date Published: November 2017

HUD considers an individual household as any number of individuals that are mortgagors under the same mortgage, or tenants under the same lease/rental agreement, including current and prospective mortgagors and/or tenants. In addition, multiple individuals that reside under separate households, but receive counseling services simultaneously for the same issue (e.g. three families experiencing the same problem with the same landlord) should also be counted as an individual household.
