HUD Certified Housing Counselor Database - Coordinator
Business Background

A housing counseling agency's FHA Connection Application Coordinator uses HUD Certified Housing Counselor Database - Coordinator to validate that a counselor is employed by the Application Coordinator's agency and conducts counseling for HUD-related programs. Counselors maintain their own personal, contact, and HECM training information. Authorized HUD personnel can also update the counselor's personal and contact information, if the counselor is unable to do so. When the counselor is no longer employed by the agency or is no longer conducting counseling for HUD-related programs, the Application Coordinator uses HUD Certified Housing Counselor Database - Coordinator to enter an employment end date.

An Application Coordinator who is also a HECM or certified counselor cannot maintain his/her own employment validation information. In this instance, the housing counseling agency must have at least one other Application Coordinator so that Application Coordinators can maintain employment validation information for each other.

HECM Counselors

A HECM counselor cannot be placed on the HECM Counselor Roster until the employment validation is processed (and the counselor meets all other requirements).

The HECM Counselors lookup also provides information about counselors on the HECM Counselor Roster, including the counselor's employment validation records. The HECM Counselors function can be accessed through the following sequence of FHA Connection links: Single Family FHA, Single Family Origination, FHA Approval Lists, and HECM Counselors.
