The New Office of Housing Counseling: Q & A with HUD Senior Policy Advisor, Sarah Gerecke


Are you aware that the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act mandates the creation of a new HUD Office of Housing Counseling? On October 1, 2012 this new office opened. Webinar participants will have the opportunity to hear about the new office and pertinent changes, and will learn the answers to questions such as:

  • Will the housing counseling program change with the opening of the new office?
  • Will I keep the same Government Technical Representative (GTR)?
  • Where will the office be located?
  • Why was this office created?

You will also be given a chance to interact with the presenters and pose your questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
