HUD Marks 10th Anniversary of the Office of Housing Counseling
October 3, 2022
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Housing Counseling marked its tenth anniversary since being created as a distinct office reporting to HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Housing. Throughout October, the Office will celebrate the many contributions of HUD’s housing counseling program in helping individuals and families obtain and maintain safe, sustainable, and affordable homeownership and rental housing.
“Whether it was helping homeowners through the foreclosure challenges of the 2012 housing crisis, responding to the housing needs of victims of disasters, or the continuing housing relief and recovery resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, housing counselors have been there over the last decade to support families in making critical housing choices and equipping themselves for the future,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary for Housing Counseling David Berenbaum. “This month, we recognize not only our role in helping people stay in their homes during times of crisis, but also in supporting a network of HUD Certified Housing Counselors who serve some 3,000 clients a day.”
