Former Rep. Marcia Fudge Confirmed as HUD Secretary

On Wednesday, March 10th, the Senate voted 66-34 to confirm former Representative Marcia Fudge (D-OH-11) as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Secretary Fudge becomes the first Black woman in decades to head the agency and will be charged with addressing the challenges of America's housing crisis that have been worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic.

CHAPA and the New England Housing Network look forward to working with Secretary Fudge and HUD to provide safe, healthy, and affordable homes for our families in Massachusetts and across the region.
