This information is collected in connection with HUD’s Housing Counseling Program and will be used by HUD to determine that the grant applicants meet the requirements of the Comprehensive Housing Counseling Program Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) and all other housing counseling requirements. The information allows HUD to work with organizations that provide tenant and homeownership counseling. Counseling helps tenants and homeowners to improve their housing conditions and in meeting the responsibilities of tenancy and homeownership. HUD-approved housing counseling agencies can compete for program grant funds.
This emergency review is necessary because the use of normal clearance procedures is reasonably likely to prevent or disrupt the collection of information that is needed to ensure proper collection of data in response to our FY 2021 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) that is currently progressing through departmental clearance and will be published within the next 30 days or less. The emergency review is also necessary so that HUD-participating agencies may continue to provide housing counseling services to families facing financial hardship including those seeking assistance in preventing rental eviction or mortgage default as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

US Code: 12 USC 1701x Name of Law: Assistance with respect to housing for low- and moderate-income families
