Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Mel Martinez has
made great progress on implementing President Bush's housing agenda.
Since his appointment in 2001, Secretary Martinez has focused on
four priorities: expanding homeownership, especially among minorities;
improving access to affordable housing, free from discrimination;
strengthening communities, with a special focus on ending chronic
homelessness; and addressing the internal management issues that
he inherited at HUD.
In just two years, HUD is closer to meeting its promise of becoming
an agent of empowerment, compassion and opportunity. Our work is
guided by our determination to make government more responsive and
accountable, with an insistence on measurable results. HUD's key
accomplishments may be viewed or downloaded as a fact sheet, or
