HUD: Agency Closes 2023 with Historic Investments in Housing

Biden-Harris Administration and HUD mark milestones in first-time homeownership, taking on racial discrimination in housing, delivering rental assistance, and building climate-resilient homes, and advancing a more equitable housing finance system.

When this Administration began, conditions were bleak. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans could not access quality, safe, and affordable housing options. Three years later, under the leadership of Secretary Marcia L. Fudge, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has made historic strides to provide direct housing assistance, expand opportunities for homeownership and affordable rental housing, build climate-resilient communities, and root out discrimination in housing.


“I could not be prouder to serve an Administration and a Department that is expanding access to affordable housing like never before,” said HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “In the midst of a tough housing market, the need has never been greater for our assistance. But we are working to meet the challenge. From broadening homeownership opportunities for first-time homebuyers, to taking on discrimination in housing, we are making a real impact on those we serve.”
