Housing and Urban Development Mission Statement

HUD’s mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. HUD is working to strengthen the housing market to bolster the economy and protect consumers; meet the need for quality affordable rental homes; utilize housing as a platform for improving quality of life; build inclusive and sustainable communities free from discrimination; and transform the way HUD does business.

HUD Cyber Security Strategic Plan

  1. Modernize HUD’s Information technology to support key HUD business initiatives
  2. Transform the information technology infrastructure to adapt to and adopt emerging technologies
  3. Develop a cadre of highly capable IT professionals with mission critical competencies needed to meet the Department’s goals
  4. Provide secure, rapid, and reliable data and information to our customers, citizens, and business partners


HUD is regarded by many to be one of the more poorly defended federal enterprises. They have definite needs for enhanced cyber security, but significant budgetary pressures limit their ability to execute.
