HUD Certified Housing Counselor Database
Business Background

HUD Certified Housing Counselor Database is used to get the records of the following:

Some counselors are both certified and HECM counselors.

Counselors currently on the HECM Counselor Roster, or whose HUD Certified Housing Counselor Application was accepted, have an Active status. Counselors with a Terminated status are those whose Active status was revoked.

The housing counseling agency's FHA Connection Application Coordinator can add or update employment validation information for a counselor with an Active status. Counselors with an Active status can update some of their own information. If the counselor has a Terminated status, no changes can be made. If the FHA Connection Application Coordinator is also a counselor, employment validation must be entered by another Application Coordinator employed by the agency.
