The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has designated the City of Tuscaloosa as a HUD Housing Counseling Agency.
A HUD Housing Counseling Agency provides resources to homebuyers, homeowners, low-to-moderate –income renters and people experiencing homelessness. HUD Agencies work to improve financial literacy, expand homeownership opportunities, preserve homeownership and improve access to affordable housing.
The City of Tuscaloosa’s Office of Community and Neighborhood Services has four HUD-certified Housing Counselors who are approved by HUD to perform housing counseling services.
“Housing counseling services are highly beneficial to our community,” said LaParry Howell, executive director of the Office of Community and Neighborhood Services. “I’d like to thank our team members for their hard work to complete the certification process and prepare a successful Housing Counseling Agency application.”
Tuscaloosa residents may access housing counseling services by calling 205-248-5080 or emailing email@example.com.
