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.
OED provides agency-wide program support on a number of technical subjects: community engagement, infrastructure, disaster mitigation, water/energy efficiency, financing, land use planning, regional accessibility, building design, performance measurement, and health.
Stay informed about OED activities, partner accomplishments, new tools and resources, and federal funding opportunities by subscribing to our OED listerv for email updates. You can find an archive of past updates online at HUD Exchange.
