Partnering across borders and across sectors


The International and Philanthropic Affairs Division (IPAD) creates and strengthens partnerships and conducts research and policy analysis across borders and sectors to assist HUD program offices in achieving their goals.

IPAD’s mission is to foster partnerships and maximize collaboration with the international and philanthropic communities to support HUD’s strategic objectives. Through partnerships, we leverage the resources, research, expertise, and ideas of a network of organizations to improve HUD’s impact in communities.
