Strengthening Communities Forum
HUD’s mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. Creating stronger communities include includes broad community-level issues such as reducing State and local regulatory barriers to affordable housing development, facilitating housing recovery after disasters while creating more resilient housing and communities, and helping ensure that new Opportunity Zone investments are beneficial to communities and are supported by HUD program efforts. Stronger communities also require better housing stock, which relates to such issues as removal of lead-based paint hazards and other health risks and advancing building technology to improve affordability, energy efficiency, and performance of housing.
