HUD Housing Counselor Certification Conference Call


August 06, 2020 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT



This conference call, published August 6, 2020, covered the Interim Final Rule on the Federal Register website which announced a delay in the deadline for housing counselors to become HUD certified. The new final compliance date is August 1, 2021. This pause is meant to ensure that vital housing counseling services remain available to the nation's homebuyers and renters, particularly those who need housing and mortgage assistance to recover financially from the effects of the COVID-19 national emergency.

If you have any questions about the Interim Final Rule, please send an email to housing.counseling@hud.gov and please include "certification" in the subject line. View more information about HUD housing counselor certification on the HUD Exchange.
