The EnVision Center demonstration focuses on empowering people to leave HUD-assisted housing through self-sufficiency to become responsible homeowners and renters in the private market. By doing so, HUD will be able to make those resources available to others and help more Americans.

Reaching Out - Making a Difference
Secretary Ben Carson
 

Today, HUD is announcing the Protect Our Kids! initiative — a Department-wide review & effort to ensure compliance with regulations that are intended to reduce the potential of lead poisoning in children. I approach this endeavor, lead and other home hazard prevention, with a tremendous sense of purpose, with an enormous degree of humility, and with an insatiable desire to fix these problems quickly and correctly.
