Access Granted!

Do you ever find yourself searching the web for hours to find an answer to one simple question? Yesterday, I found myself involved in a drawn-out search for one simple form. The general point of a website is to make information readily available for its users. A website should not be a document repository of unnecessary information, yet so many sites, including HUD.gov, fall prey to just that.

We want you to know that we are constantly working to improve the way we present information to the public on our sites.

We understand that a wide range of audience groups visit HUD.gov on a daily basis which is why we offer information in many different ways such as:

  • audience groups
  • top tasks under the “I want to” section on the HUD.gov homepage, which lists our most popular pages
  • quick links for when you want to access all of HUD.gov’s information from one location.

Take some time to look around on HUD.gov. We are here to make it easier for you to get to the information you need.  We know that HUD.gov belongs to you and we thank you for helping us make it better.

    • Dear Ms. Haagstad :

      HUD sponsors housing counseling agencies throughout the country that can give you advice on affordable housing. You can find a counselor near you at this website: . They can help you sort through your options.

      You can also visit the “Rental Help” page for your state for information about HUD-subsidized apartments and links to your local public housing authority.

      You can find additional information about renting in our Renter’s kit .

      Finally, call your local government . Talk to the office of housing and community development or your mayor’s office to see if there are any local rental programs that might be right for you.

  2. Thank you for adding a blog to the HUD site. Looking forward to site improvements and interesting information on the blog.
