Foreclosure Prevention and Housing Counseling Centers

HUD-approved agencies under the City’s Foreclosure Prevention Program (FPP) and Housing Counseling Centers Program provide FREE housing counseling services to homeowners that are at risk of foreclosure and/or first-time homebuyers.

  • Foreclosure Prevention Program (FPP) - Personalized foreclosure prevention counseling and education to at-risk homeowners. The HUD-approved agencies can assist at-risk homeowners by making direct contact with their current lenders or servicers regarding loss mitigation options.
  • Housing Counseling Centers Program (HCC) – Provides an 8-hour homebuyer education certificate, which may include six hours of pre-purchase education counseling and two hours of individual counseling to potential buyers.

Both programs provide information, advice, and assistance to current and potential homeowners. All services may be rendered through one-on-one counseling, stand-alone courses, or a combination of both. Agencies do not charge a fee for any of the programs and must meet the standards prescribed by HUD.

Please note: Online certificates are not accepted for most City of Chicago purchase price assistance programs.
