WASHINGTON – On behalf of the National Housing Conference (NHC), I would like to congratulate Marcia Fudge on her confirmation as Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
With her service as a local elected official and mayor of an inner ring suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, and her work behind the scenes at the U.S. Treasury Department, she brings an impressive track record of leading efforts to revitalize communities and advocating for vulnerable populations and underserved communities.
A dedicated public servant, Secretary Fudge will bring fresh ideas to advancing community development and driving much-needed investments to close the minority homeownership gap and increase affordable housing opportunities in communities across the nation.
NHC looks forward to working with Secretary Fudge and HUD.
