HUD Strategic Plan 2014-2018
This document presents the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) Strategic Plan for fiscal years (FY) 2014 through 2018. HUD was created as a cabinet-level agency in 1965. Its mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality, affordable homes for all. To provide a framework for the delivery of HUD’s mission and vision, the Strategic Plan outlines a set of strategic goals, objectives, and performance measures. Simply put, this plan serves as a guide for what the Department will achieve, how we will achieve it, and how we will measure our success.
Over the past 4 years, HUD has aimed to engage new local and federal partners, adjust our policies and programs to better serve the American people, address common problems across a broader metropolitan geography, and transform the way we do business. HUD has been committed to doing its part in preventing foreclosures, enhancing access to affordable housing, and revitalizing distressed communities. To build on this progress, this Strategic Plan 2014–2018 lays out priorities and goals to accelerate the gains already made.
