Showing the Way: The Official Guide to HUD’s Small Business Programs

Welcome to HUD

Dear Potential Vendor:

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is the federal agency responsible for national policy and programs that address America’s housing needs, improve and develop the Nation’s communities and enforce fair housing laws. HUD spends around $1 billion annually on supplies and services to support its programs and operations. HUD is assisted in carrying out its responsibilities by a variety of independent contractors and vendors.

HUD is committed to providing universal access to its procurement dollars for all types of businesses both small and large. The Department recognizes that small businesses are of vital importance to job growth and the economic strength of the country; therefore, a significant amount of our contract dollars are awarded to small businesses.

This guide, developed by the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU), will provide you with valuable information to assist you in your marketing efforts to the Department. The OSDBU is responsible for ensuring that small businesses are treated fairly and that they have an opportunity to compete and be selected for a fair amount of HUD’s prime contracting and subcontracting opportunities. This office is available to assist you in your marketing efforts.

Thank you for your interest in doing business with HUD.
