This week, HUD awarded $51.4 million in housing counseling grants to 177 HUD-approved housing counseling agencies and intermediary organizations. The funding supports housing counseling agencies in their critical work to stem the tide of the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on housing, maintain housing stability by helping families with foreclosure and rental eviction prevention, and help families make more informed housing choices. The awards also include funding to further training and education to attract and retain more housing counseling professionals.
Two CLPHA members, the Paterson Housing Authority and the Greensboro Housing Authority, received housing counseling awards of $16,912 and $88,239. Congratulations to the Paterson, NJ and Greensboro, NC housing authorities!
