Our ability to be flexible, fast and accountable has earned us the trust of the U.S. Congress, the administration, financial institutions, local governments and nonprofit organizations.
We tackle some of the nation's biggest housing and community development challenges:
- Access to affordable, sustainable homeownership.
- Safe, quality rental homes.
- Foreclosure mitigation and recovery.
- Community resiliency in the wake of disasters like Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina.
- Professional training and certification for those in the field.

We report annually to Congress on our performance, as well as provide feedback from the field on federal policies and regulations.
We also support a number of research efforts, including a fellowship program with Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies
. These reports and other research are offered free to professionals and the public.
