Office of Asset Management and Portfolio Oversight

The Office of Asset Management and Portfolio Oversight (OAMPO) is within Multifamily Housing Programs to promote the highest standards of asset management practices. OAMPO is responsible for the portfolio of multifamily assets after the development phase.

Our goal is to support the targeted Multifamily Housing mission within the broader mission of HUD. We accomplish this through the development of supporting policies and interpretation of policy, control of participation in the multifamily asset programs, oversight of lender and field servicing activities including multifamily management and field operations, and management of relationships with internal and external partners.
