New Initiative: Introducing the Housing Counseling Corps

New Initiative: Introducing the Housing Counseling Corps

Housing Action Illinois is excited to bring together two of our programs—supporting housing counseling agencies and managing a network of AmeriCorps VISTA members—for a new initiative: the Housing Counseling Corps. We will place AmeriCorps VISTA members with agencies in need of new talent and HUD-certified housing counselors. After a year of service, these AmeriCorps members will be well-positioned to begin a job as a certified counselor at their host site or another housing counseling agency.

We’re hosting an informational webinar on how to write a strong application to become host site on August 24; applications will be due on September 10.
