On March 10, the Senate voted to confirm Representative Marcia Fudge (D-OH) as the next HUD Secretary.

In a congratulatory letter to Secretary Fudge, LeadingAge President & CEO Katie Smith Sloan said, “We look forward to working with you to advocate for and carry out the robust housing platform elucidated by President Joe Biden during his presidential campaign. This housing platform reflects solutions to older adults’ need for affordable, accessible, and quality housing.”

LeadingAge looks forward to working with HUD on our shared goals of beating COVID-19, expanding the supply of affordable housing, and expanding home and community based services, among others as outlined in an attachment to our letter, which is here.
