Equity Action Plan: U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development   [open pdf - 412KB]

From the Executive Summary: "The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. Meeting the aspiration of this goal requires that HUD prioritizes people in communities otherwise underserved by federal programs. HUD is working to strengthen the housing market to bolster the economy and protect consumers; meet the need for quality affordable rental homes; utilize housing as a platform to improve quality of life; build inclusive and sustainable communities free from discrimination; and transform the way HUD does business. [...] HUD's action plan responds to the request in Executive Order 13985 as implemented by the Office of Management and Budget to specifically address (1) procurement and (2) resources to the agency's civil rights unit, the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO). Access to federal contracting opportunities can support economic growth and wealth building for members of underserved communities. HUD's fair housing and civil rights work has a broad scope and touches every person in this country. Furthermore, the underlying mission of FHEO is squarely focused on underserved communities by eliminating housing and lending discrimination against persons of color and other vulnerable populations."
