According to the HUD website, the Dodd-Frank Act mandates the HUD secretary appoint an advisory committee to provide advice to the Office of Housing Counseling (OHC). The committee features leaders from the mortgage and real estate industry who advise HUD on ways to build sustainable homeownership.
HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge thanked all of the committee members "for their dedication to helping shape the future direction of HUD's Housing Counseling Program. Now, more than ever, HUD-certified housing counselors are fulfilling a critical role in helping homeowners and renters remain in their homes as our country continues to address the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic impacts that resulted."
