On October 25, HUD formally announced a coordinated outreach effort to promote homeownership, including among young people, centered on a November 1 virtual event with Secretary Fudge. HUD is requesting that partners amplify the outreach and are seeking partners to amplify outreach around this event.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Secretary Marcia L. Fudge will hold a virtual “House Party” on November 1, 2022, at 6:30 pm EDT to share information on available federal resources and bust common myths around the homebuying process. This event is designed to encourage young adults who wish to become homeowners but feel the barriers are too steep, especially in communities of color. Several special guests will join Secretary Fudge, including young adults with lived experience of becoming a homeowner.
The event is free and open to the public. Download the Digital Toolkit here.

The ‘party’ takes place November 1 at 6:30 pm EDT. The event will stream live on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. HUD encourages registration at: www.hud.gov/hudhousepartyregistration.
