Facing a pandemic, unprecedented economic downturn, profound climate crisis, and persistent racial injustices, President Biden outlined an ambitious agenda that would position America not just to return to where we were pre-pandemic, but to build back better toward a more sustainable, resilient, equitable, and prosperous future.
Driven by the largest shortfall of new housing units in 50 years, rents and housing prices continue to increase-with some 10.5 million renters paying more than half their incomes in rent. The Build Back Better Agenda will use tax credits and government financing to bolster affordable and resilient housing, supporting the construction or rehabilitation of more than two million homes.
HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.
