Housing Assistance Overview

The United Planning Organization provides a wide-range of housing opportunities to prevent homelessness.

We are a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approved Housing Counseling agency, an affiliate agency of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition. UPO provides comprehensive assistance to persons who want to rent, buy or already own a home, and who seek to be responsible renters, buyers and owners. The primary objectives of the program are to expand home ownership opportunities, improve access to affordable housing and preserve home ownership.

UPO’s Housing Counseling Program enables anyone who wants to (or already does) rent or own housing – whether through a HUD, Veterans Affairs or other Federal program, State or local program, or the regular private market – to get the counseling they need to make their rent or mortgage payments and to be a responsible tenant or owner.
