HUD’s 2018-2022 Strategic Plan Posted

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released its strategic plan for fiscal year 2018-2022. According to the report, HUD’s primary goals are to “Rethink American Communities” and “Reimagine the Way HUD Works.” 

HUD plans to achieve its priority goals by implementing the following strategies: 

  • Promoting economic opportunity by supporting self-sufficiency and financial stability among households that are exiting HUD-assisted housing and expanding coordination and partnership of supportive services at the local level. 
  • Enhancing rental assistance by developing and implementing creative sustainable transitioning strategy of public housing units.
  • Reducing the average length of homelessness so that homelessness experiences are rare, brief and non-reoccurring. 
  • Supporting sustainable homeownership and financial viability.
  • Removing lead-based hazards and other health risks from homes.
  • Organizing and delivering services more effectively. 

The report also highlights management objectives on how to reach the strategic goals.
