The Department of Housing and Urban Development is the principal Federal agency responsible for programs concerned with the Nation's housing needs, fair housing opportunities, and improvement and development of the Nation's communities.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) was established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (42 U.S.C. 3532– 3537), effective November 9, 1965. It was created to:

-administer the principal programs that provide assistance for housing and for the development of the Nation's communities;

encourage the solution of housing and community development problems through States and localities; and

- encourage the maximum contributions that may be made by vigorous private homebuilding and mortgage lending industries, both primary and secondary, to housing, community development, and the national economy.

Although HUD administers many programs, its major functions may be grouped into six categories:

-insuring mortgages for single-family and multifamily dwellings, and extending loans for home improvement and for purchasing mobile homes;

- channeling funds from investors into the mortgage industry through the Government National Mortgage Association;

-making direct loans for construction or rehabilitation of housing projects for the elderly and the handicapped;

-providing Federal housing subsidies for low- and moderate-income families;

-providing grants to States and communities for community development activities, and

-promoting and enforcing fair housing and equal housing opportunity. Office of the Secretary Secretary The Department is administered under the supervision and direction of a Cabinet-level Secretary who:

-formulates recommendations for basic policies in the fields of housing and community development;

-works with the Executive Office of the President and other Federal agencies to ensure that economic and fiscal policies in housing and community development are consistent with other economic and fiscal policies of the Government;

- encourages private enterprise to serve as large a part of the Nation's total housing and community development needs as possible;

-promotes the growth of cities and States and the efficient and effective use of housing and community and economic development resources by stimulating private sector initiatives, public/private sector partnerships, and public entrepreneurship;

ensures equal access to housing and affirmatively prevents discrimination in housing; and

-provides general oversight, as required by law, of the Federal National Mortgage Association.
