HUD at 50: Creating Pathways to Opportunity

HUD at 50: Creating Pathways to Opportunity

HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research

Join HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research on January 12 for a thought-provoking discussion exploring how HUD's policies have evolved over the last 50 years and what direction they may take going forward. Following an update on U.S. housing market conditions, this Quarterly Update will delve into the key themes explored in HUD at 50: Creating Pathways to Opportunity, PD&R's recently released publication that commemorates HUD's 50th anniversary. Topics will include HUD's treatment of race and poverty; the rise, fall, and rebirth of cities; the relationship between housing policy and demographic change; how HUD's work serves vulnerable populations; and how the department will approach these issues in the future.
