Office of Housing Counseling Awards $41.3 Million in Grants

Housing commissioner says it is an important step in housing equity.

 The Department of Housing and Urban Development recently announced that its Office of Housing Counseling is awarding $41.3 million in grants to 173 housing counseling agencies. This is the second installment of the two-year grant originally awarded to these HUD-approved agencies in September 2021. The funding will help local housing counselors advise homebuyers on issues such as foreclosure, disaster recovery, and pre-purchase information.

“Today’s awards provide important funding for housing counseling agencies that are performing crucial services for individuals and families across the nation,” said Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner Julia Gordon. “Maintaining and funding a network of quality housing counseling resources through our Office of Housing Counseling is a key piece of achieving HUD’s goals to reduce barriers and promote equity in housing.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Marcia Fudge as she oversees the work and programs of HUD.
  • For HUD officials as they distribute funding for housing counseling programs.
  • For Commissioner Julia Gordon to seek God’s direction as she heads her agency.
