- The Performance Management Division develops, analyzes, and reports on key performance indicators for HUD and agency priority goals.
- The Grants Management & Oversight Division establishes and implements agency-wide policies and procedures for HUD’s competitive grant programs, provides oversight and assistance to competitive grant programs to assure timely execution consistent with guidance, and reports to leadership on the status and outcomes of competitive grant programs.
