The Department of Housing And Urban Development Launches HUD Cares Tour to Highlight Key Agency Milestones

This campaign will be comprised of a multi-city tour to showcase the agency’s accomplishments.

WASHINGTON - Today, the Department of Housing and Urban Development officially launched the HUD Cares Tour, a multi-city tour that will highlight the agency’s key milestones and accomplishments since the beginning of the Biden-Harris administration as well as priorities for 2024.

“Over the last three years, we have made great strides to improve the state of housing in this country and I am incredibly proud of the work we’ve done thus far,” said Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “When I stepped into this role three years ago, I made it my mission to make sure that the work we did wasn’t just impactful but made a real difference in people’s lives. I care very deeply about the communities we’ve served, and I hope that the work we’ve done at HUD reflects that as well.”

The tour will be comprised of a variety of stakeholder engagements efforts by HUD officials in targeted cities throughout the country.

  • Since the onset of the Biden-Harris administration, Secretary Fudge has delivered on promises to invest in housing like never before. Since Fiscal Year 2021, HUD has:
  • Helped nearly 1.8 million people purchase a home. More than 83 percent of these homeowners were first-time homebuyers.
  • Funded over 2 million units of public housing and additional units of multifamily housing.
  • Built and repaired more than half a million units of affordable housing.
  • Awarded roughly 120,000 new incremental housing vouchers – the largest increase in vouchers in 20 years.
  • Helped more than 2 million homeowners with FHA mortgages avoid foreclosure and stay in their homes.
  • Served or permanently housed more than 1.2 million people experiencing homelessness, including over 980,000 people served through the Continuum of Care program and over 230,000 households through housing vouchers and public housing.


HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.
