I'm looking for a job. Does HUD have any jobs available?

May I use the HUD logo on my website or business cards?

How do I view/where do I find the webcasts

Answer: Check our schedule of webcasts. A link will appear at the top of that page approximately 1/2 hour before the broadcast begins, taking you to the video. Archived webcasts are usually available in the video library the day after their initial broadcast. HUD's webcasts are in a "streaming video" format. This means that the files can start playing on your computer as they download from our site. To view these files, you must have a computer capable of playing sound, a connection to the Internet that is at least 28.8Kbs, and the proper video player. Fortunately, we can link you to the free video player. We also have instructions for downloading and installing the software.

Why doesn’t your phone book/Locator work?

Answer: We've run into this problem a few times before, usually because our Locator is not on a standard web port. If you have someone who manages your internet connection, ask them if they allow web traffic on non-standard ports. Usually your IT folks have to open up a connection through your company's firewall for this specific port/address in order for locator to work.
