The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) July 3 issued a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for its Housing Counseling Grant program for fiscal year (FY) 2018. All HUD-approved counseling entities, including state HFAs, are eligible to apply.
HUD expects to award $47 million in housing counseling grants to around 300 different recipients in FY 2018. For FY 2017, HUD awarded $47 million in grant funding to 255 different housing counseling agencies, including just over $7.8 million combined to 19 state HFAs.
The deadline to apply for funding under the NOFA is August 7, 2018. Those with further questions should contact Connie Barton with HUD.
