Marcia Fudge, the 18th Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), has announced her resignation, effective March 22, marking the end of an impactful three-year tenure.

Fudge, who has dedicated nearly five decades to public service, leaves behind a legacy of tireless advocacy for equitable housing, having spearheaded initiatives that significantly improved the lives of Americans.

Under her leadership, HUD has made strides in promoting affordable housing, removing financial barriers for homebuyers, and championing the rights of people often overlooked by the system.

Her efforts have led to substantial progress, including helping over 2 million families avoid foreclosure, making it easier for individuals to get loans to buy homes, and enhancing creditworthiness assessments to benefit renters.

Her commitment to justice and equality showed through her work to support more than 2 million units of public and multifamily housing, a significant investment in Black, brown, and disadvantaged businesses in a comprehensive strategy to tackle homelessness and housing discrimination.
