The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) offers community development assistance and programs that enable US residents to access affordable housing. Created in 1965, HUD programs encompass a wide spectrum of housing assistance and enforcement, including community development block grants, single- and multi-family housing mortgage insurance, manufactured home construction and safety standards, public and Indian housing, and fair housing initiatives. The department partners with faith-based and community organizations in realizing new housing opportunities for disadvantaged residents. HUD's annual budget is nearly $45 billion.


Introduced amid the economic recession, which was rooted in the housing market, HUD's 2010-2015 Strategic Plan includes a focus on the following: promoting sustainable homeownership, improving outcomes for the poor and ending homelessness, enabling energy- and transportation-efficient homes, and revitalizing the US Gulf Coast.

The agency is also working to transform itself as it approaches its 50th anniversary. It is focused on using technology and business process changes to build capacity in its workforce, focus on results, and create a more open, flexible, modern work environment.
