July 01, 2019 Print ShareThis

For additional technical assistance, please contact your HUD Point of Contact (POC) or email

HUD-approved housing counseling agencies (HCAs) are reminded of their responsibility to transmit accurate and timely Form HUD-9902 quarterly reports.

When 100% of HCAs submit their reports on time, the HUD Office of Housing Counseling (OHC) can work with complete datasets. HCAs' Form HUD-9902 quarterly reports are a keystone in HUD's Housing Counseling Program. OHC uses the data for a variety of purposes. Form HUD-9902 quarterly reports quantify HUD's Housing Counseling Program. This data is included in reports to Congress that help substantiate HUD's annual request for Housing Counseling grant funds. Form HUD-9902 data helps identify housing counseling trends and client demographics and helps HUD assess the impact of services offered by HCAs.

Tips to assist your agency with timely Form HUD-9902 report submission:

  • HUD recommends counseling agencies transmit early the quarterly Form HUD-9902 data through their Client Management System (CMS). This will ensure that your agency has time to review the submitted data and correct errors prior to the final due date.

  • If transmission problems are encountered, please contact your HUD POC immediately.

  • HCAs who do not transmit their Form HUD-9902 report by the due date may jeopardize their agency's status as a HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agency. If your agency is a HUD housing counseling grantee, late reporting may affect timely processing of your agency's grant voucher by HUD and may negatively affect your agency’s scores in HUD housing counseling grant competitions.

  • Please review the Housing Counseling 9902 Online Toolkit for more information on Form HUD-9902 reporting requirements. The HUD-9902 General Overview and Completing the HUD-9902 Report sections provide detailed guidance.

Thank you for your continued participation in HUD’s Housing Counseling Program.
