For Immediate Release

Statement by David M. Dworkin President and CEO, National Housing Conference on the nomination of Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) to serve as Secretary of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development


Andrea Nesby

Congresswoman Fudge would bring a much-needed fresh approach to national housing policy. She has been a strong supporter of the HOME program and played a leading role in getting Congress to approve desperately needed funds to stabilize the hardest hit neighborhoods during the Great Recession.

Her background as mayor of an inner ring suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, and as a leader on education policy, would be important as HUD plays an important role in reversing the catastrophic loss of Black homeowners over the past 10 years. Congresswoman Fudge understands the need to make housing policy work for all communities, urban, suburban and rural.

We look forward to supporting her confirmation by the United States Senate and working with her in the days and years to come.
