Summary

  • HFAs have a unique perspective on federal housing and community development programs. As state entities, they understand their local needs and are able to design programs tailored to those needs that prioritize the most pressing challenges throughout their states.

    HUD programs are a crucial component of state efforts to address the affordable housing and housing-related needs of their residents and communities. These programs help families and individuals transform their lives by creating quality and sustainable living environments that lift families out of poverty and desperate situations; help children stay healthy and thrive in school; support seniors, people with special needs, and veterans; and house persons experiencing homelessness. They contribute to community revitalization by supporting good jobs, fostering business growth, building vital infrastructure, and promoting transportation solutions.
