HUD to provide $60 million in housing counseling grants

The U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced this week it will issue $60 million in housing and counseling training grants to assist families in becoming first-time homeowners and remaining homeowners after their purchase.

Grant recipients will help home buyers and homeowners realistically evaluate their readiness for a home purchase, understand their financing and down payment options, and navigate the home-buying process.  Recipients also will offer foreclosure-prevention counseling to current homeowners.
