Contacting HUD Customer Service Center
HUD, also known as the Department of Housing and Urban Development, provides shelter assistance and home-buying aid for low-income or income-qualified US residents. The main HUD website can help navigate the visitor to the correct information for a specific locality where application must be made for service. HUD operates on a federal level, but all money is based on local income limits and need.
Phone Contact Numbers
The main phone number for HUD customer service connects the caller with the office in Washington, DC. This number will NOT help you apply for local HUD assistance, but if there is a problem on a local level this agency may be able to help.

The official website for HUD is http://www.hud.gov. This site links the consumer to HUD programs, but all programs are operated on a local level. HUD does a great job of describing the programs and helping consumers connect with local agencies. There is quite a lot of detailed information about program qualifications on the official website.
