Coats of Arms are never issued to families they are issued only to individuals. So there is no one Howard Family Coat of Arms, there may be some individuals with the surname Howard who have the right to bear arms but not as a family.
One place to start researching heraldy is the Royal College of Arms http://www.college-of-arms.gov.uk/
The Earl Marshal of England supervises the heralds and College of Arms, he is also the Duke of Norfolk and is Edward William HOWARD.
