About the Agency

The Office of Housing provides vital public services through its nationally administered programs. It oversees the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), the largest mortgage insurer in the world, and regulates important parts of the housing industry. The Office of Housing also helps ensure consumers can access housing counseling and provides affordable rental housing through its Multifamily housing program. The Office of Housing is committed to helping all Americans obtain safe, decent affordable housing.

The Office of Healthcare Programs (OHP) administers FHA's healthcare programs, the Section 232 Mortgage Insurance for Residential Care Facilities and Section 242 Mortgage Insurance for Hospitals programs. Both programs enable the affordable financing and refinancing of healthcare facility projects and are integral to HUD’s community development mission. OHP’s programs assist hospitals and residential care facilities (such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities) to more reasonably finance construction, renovation, acquisition, or refinancing projects. These programs strengthen local communities, improve access to healthcare, and decrease overall healthcare costs.
