LOUISVILLE - U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Kentucky Field Office Director Michael Browder is traveling the Commonwealth to meet with partners and stakeholders since taking his new position last month.

So far Browder has met with the Housing Policy Advisory Committee, the Kentucky Council of Area Development Districts, the Barren Riven Area Development District Committee, the Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency Committee, mayors, and key stakeholders to facilitate the continuing strong relationships with the HUD Kentucky Office.

"The work that we all do matters in Kentucky on so many levels," said Browder. "Our partnerships are so important to all of us achieving our collective missions. And HUD wants to make sure that we do our part in those partnerships."

Browder has been speaking to the groups about the important work being done by HUD and its partners throughout Kentucky to support innovative approaches to access quality and affordable housing, ending homelessness, financial empowerment and self-sufficiency programs for HUD residents, ConnectHome broadband connection for low-income Americans, lead free housing, and fair housing that is free from discrimination.

Browder was formerly the HUD Kentucky Public Housing Director for five years before assuming his new role with the Department.
