HUD announces Housing Counseling Funds

Awards were announced yesterday and Housing Partnership Network (HPN) has received the highest comprehensive counseling award of all intermediaries – $1.38 million. Please see the press release here: http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/press/press_releases_media_advisories/2012/HUDNo.12-055

We apply for our HUD counseling funding through intermediaries like HPN because the HUD application and reporting requirements are so taxing for small groups and are no different if your award is $70,000 or if it is $1.38 million. As a subgrantee and member, we receive many other benefits. Intermediaries are a resource for networking, training and advocacy.  St. Ambrose is also a charter member of NeighborWorks America. 

All housing counseling groups are concerned about the funding for these services. However, last summer we were looking at zero funding, so this is good news.  Thank you to all the advocates in Congress who fought to maintain this funding.
