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 viewed in more comprehensive detail.
