HUD Awards Nearly $40 Million in Housing Counseling Grants
On June 16, 2020, HUD awarded nearly $40 million in housing counseling grants to help over one million individuals and families access HUD-approved housing counseling. These grants help individuals and families avoid foreclosure and make more informed homebuying and rental choices.
The grants will directly support the housing counseling services provided by 204 HUD-approved local housing counseling agencies, national and regional organizations, and state housing finance agencies (SHFAs). Recipients of these grants competed through the Department's two-year (FY 2019 and 2020) Comprehensive Housing Counseling Grant Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) published in 2019.
