HUD Announces FY 2015 Counseling Grant Recipients

HUD recently announced the recipients of approximately $34 million in Housing Counseling program grants for fiscal year (FY) 2015. The awards given out this year represent the second phase of HUD’s two-year Comprehensive Housing Counseling Grant Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), which was published in March 2014, and covered FYs 2014 and 2015. The funding will go to 270 different housing counseling agencies, including 20 state housing finance agencies.

These grants will support programs that provide low- and moderate-income consumers with a variety of counseling services, including educating first-time home buyers about their options, helping families secure affordable rental housing, and offering financial literacy training to those who have experienced credit troubles.
