AGENCY AND MISSION
As part of its mission, HUD is committed to creating places throughout the nation that effectively connect people to jobs, transportation, quality public schools, and other amenities - "geographies of opportunity."
For our residents, we pledge to improve lives by creating affordable homes in safe, healthy communities of opportunity, and by protecting the rights and affirming the values of a diverse society.
For our partners, we will be a flexible, reliable problem solver and source of innovation.
For our employees, we will be a great place to work, where employees are valued, mission driven, results oriented, innovative, and collaborative.
For the public, we will be a good neighbor, building inclusive and sustainable communities that create value and investing public money responsibly to deliver results that matter.
When choosing a home, citizens are not only choosing a physical structure, but they are also choosing communities and the opportunities available in those communities, transportation to work, schools for their children, and public safety. Ensuring that every American has those choices is what HUD has desigend its programs to do.
