“We congratulate Dr. Carson on his confirmation as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). We look forward to working with him to address the many housing challenges facing communities across the country.”

“There is much work to be done. It is critical that he build on the agency’s work to affirmatively further fair housing, prevent homelessness, increase homeownership opportunities through the Federal Housing Administration, ensure strong enforcement of the nation’s fair housing laws, and ensure that the nation’s housing programs are adequately funded so that all Americans have access to safe, affordable housing.”

“Dr. Carson has been entrusted with these important duties. He has the opportunity to have an enormous and positive impact in America’s communities, if he carries out those duties thoughtfully and compassionately. We will be closely monitoring the Trump Administration and Dr. Carson’s progress in carrying out the mission of the agency.”
