Homeownership is a National Priority

Helping more low and moderate income Americans become homeowners is a national priority, especially first-time homebuyers and minority families.

Since its inception in 1934, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has been a door to homeownership for 34 million American individuals and families. FHA provides access to reasonably priced mortgages and fair terms, as well as many options for keeping Americans in their homes. We look forward to its continued role in making the dream of homeownership achievable for all Americans.

Revisit the bus tour!

Each June, HUD celebrates National Homeownership Month. This page is an archive of the press releases and bus tour events that occurred during the 2003 celebration.

During the month HUD staff kept a journal of the events and the places they visited. Read the homeownership month tour journal to see HUD bringing the message of homeownership across the country.
