Recovery Act Successes: Recognizing HUD's Partners in the DC Area

Reaching out to our local communities to stabilize economic conditions and help those harmed by the economic crisis, HUD's Recovery Act funds pumped millions into the DC Area (certain counties in VA and MD and the District of Columbia) to support three themes that align with the broader goals of the Recovery Act: (1) promoting energy efficiency and creating green jobs, (2) unlocking the credit markets and supporting shovel-ready projects, and (3) mitigating the effects of the economic crisis and preventing community decline. HUD's overriding objective in support of these goals is the creation and preservation of jobs.

In recognition of the noteworthy achievement of HUD partners "Getting it done and getting it done right," the District of Columbia HUD Field Office has inducted those partners who have expended or drawn down 100% of their American Recovery Act funds into the Hall of Fame.

The honorees are as follows:
