Julian Castro on Welfare & Poverty

 

 


Government can help needy families get back on their feet

As the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, I worked to expand the promise of opportunity to Americans all over the nation. Together, my team and I made housing more accessible, lessened homelessness among our nation's veterans and even offered internet access to families in public housing. We set out to help families get back on their feet and achieve more than they thought possible.

ConnectHome: make HUD the Department of Opportunity

Every year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) creates opportunity for more than 30 million Americans, including more than 11.6 million children. That support ranges from assisting someone in critical need with emergency shelter for a night to helping more than 7.8 million homeowners build intergenerational wealth. Simply put, HUD provides a passport to the middle class. HUD is many things but, most of all, it is the Department of Opportunity. Everything we did in the last eight years was oriented to bring greater opportunity to the people we serve every day. That includes the thousands of public housing residents who now have access to high-speed Internet through ConnectHome. It includes the more than 1.2 million borrowers in 2016--more than 720,000 of them firsttime homebuyers--who reached their own American Dream because of the access to credit the Federal Housing Administration provides.
