HUD Highlights Regional House Parties Across the Country to Increase Homeownership

WASHINGTON - Today, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced during the final week of the initiative HUD On the Road: August 2023, the agency is rounding out the month with their work around boosting homeownership through HUD House Parties across the country. “HUD on the Road” aims to make HUD more accessible, supporting those in need while enhancing wealth-building and homeownership opportunities for all Americans.

“In June, we were excited to mark National Homeownership Month by hosting HUD’s House Party 2.0 on the National Mall. The lively event gave us an opportunity to show people that homeownership, and the wealth building opportunities it provides, is possible,” said Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “Throughout the summer, our HUD team has hosted regional house parties in communities across the country to share information about what it takes to buy a home in 2023. The regional house parties are helping us make sure current and future homeowners in every community are informed, and prepared to navigate the home buying process. I’m pleased so many people have joined us to start their journey toward homeownership.”
