About ULA:

The UnidosUS Learning Alliance (ULA) is a national training and certification program for housing counselors. ULA courses are developed in collaboration with UnidosUS Wealth and Housing Alliance (UWHA) housing counseling agencies located in major cities and rural communities throughout the U.S.

The curriculum of the ULA is based on the streamlined delivery methods, strategies, and experience of the UWHA and its participating agencies, managers, and counselors. The methods taught have been successfully replicated in more than 50 organizations in 20 states and 40 housing markets and are proven to increase the impact of local nonprofit housing agencies and effectively meet the needs of their communities. Learning Alliance courses provide housing counselors and managers with the training and information they need to be effective in the housing industry.

ULA courses are open to all housing counselor professionals—current and prospective—who are looking to advance their careers.
