Don't speak English but have questions about buying a home, rent assistance, foreclosure? Try the HUD Language Line

Have a question about buying a home, rental assistance or foreclosure but English is not your first language?  HUD can help with its HUD Language Line, a live telephone interpretation service that will allow HUD staff to converse with the public in almost any language.

To help HUD staff better communicate with Limited English Proficient (LEP) families about the information they need on housing programs and services, the HUD Language Line, a pilot telephone service will offer live, one-on-one interpretation services in more than 175 languages, 24 hours a day.

The HUD Language line is currently scheduled to run through next September and will help ensure non-English speakers and their families have access to information on HUD related issues. Whether it’s a question about fair housing, homeownership, lead abatement, or housing assistance remember HUD speaks your language.
