Economic Development
What We Do

The Office of Economic Development (OED) supports HUD-wide efforts to help communities and regions make more cost-effective and coordinated investments that save taxpayer dollars, create jobs, and foster stronger local economies. We employ innovative approaches that help communities make more effective and strategic investments; support stronger and more diverse economies; expand investment in high-performing buildings and infrastructure; promote improved access to housing, jobs, and educational opportunities; and thrive in the face of future risks.
