By Presidential Proclamation, June is designated as National Homeownership Month. HUD’s Office of Housing is commemorating the month and remains committed to breaking down barriers and racial inequities to homeownership, particularly in communities of color as well as other underserved communities. In support of this effort, Single Family and Housing Counseling will host a number of events that focus on new homebuyers and sustainable solutions for struggling homeowners.

This year’s Homeownership Month celebrates the 20th year of this opportunity to amplify the benefits of homeownership and the work that remains to achieve fairness and equity in access to affordable homeownership for all Americans who seek it. HUD’s Office of Housing and Federal Housing Administration play a vital role for the nation’s homebuyers, homeowners, renters, and communities through their nationally administered programs.
