Call for Nominees to Serve on Housing Counseling Federal Advisory Committee

Here’s great news for our stakeholders involved in providing HUD-approved counseling services. To understand how its Office of Housing Counseling can best use its resources, HUD recently announced it is establishing the Housing Counseling Federal Advisory Committee.

Potential outcomes of the Committee may result in:
  • Identification of opportunities to expand visibility for, and access to, HUD housing counseling programs. 
  • Development of innovative public and private housing counseling programs. 
  • Identification of current and emerging needs for housing counseling. 
  • Development of metrics to ensure that the HUD program results in quality housing counseling delivery and a healthy housing counseling industry. 
The 12-member Committee will be equally divided among representatives from the mortgage and real estate industries, consumer interest organizations and HUD-approved counseling agencies.

The Committee is expected to meet twice per fiscal year, and at other intervals as needed to render advice to the Office of Housing Counseling. The first meeting is expected to take place in September 2015.

HUD is now accepting nominations for individuals to serve on this groundbreaking Committee. If you’re interested in applying for membership, or in nominating another individual, you’ll need to fill out an application. The submission deadline is May 14.
