June is designated as National Homeownership Month and this marks the 20th anniversary of our ongoing commitment to helping families and individuals achieve their dream of homeownership. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), including the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), continues to focus on its longstanding commitment and central role in providing accessible, affordable, and equitable homeownership opportunities to Americans nationwide.
At the core of our mission is the belief that everyone deserves the chance to live with security, dignity, and hope in a place they can call home. This is why we are committed to doing everything we can to address critical housing supply and affordability challenges, while working to advance affordable homeownership opportunities that ultimately serve as a means to unlock generational wealth-building potential.
|We are dedicated to breaking down racial and other longstanding barriers that have far too long limited access to homeownership, particularly in underserved communities of color by:
2022 is a year of momentum for HUD and the nation's homebuyers. While we seek new opportunities to unlock the potential of homeownership for more Americans, now may be a good time for buyers to take the right steps today to unlock the generational wealth-building potential that comes with homeownership. HUD will continue to lead the way in achieving these critical objectives.
HUD's nationwide network of housing counseling agencies are safely serving consumers remotely by phone and online. They provide valuable first-time homebuyer education and individual housing counseling sessions to help consumers prepare for and attain the dream of homeownership. Contact a HUD participating housing counseling agency in your community to get started and take a look at some of the available resources for potential homebuyers.
