Estimating Pre-Purchase Housing Counseling andEducation Costs Per Client
Journal of Extension
The per client cost of providing housing counseling and education programs (HCE) can be high, and funding for HCE providers is competitive. Counseling providers that can estimate per client costs compete more effectively for limited program funding. Using a case study, the authors describe how a previously determined formula can be used to calculate the per client cost of pre-purchasing housing counseling. HCE agencies and Extension educators can use this formula to prepare stronger funding proposals, and thus better serve families in their respective areas.
