HUD Issues Report on Homelessness in 2023

Secretary Fudge commends government efforts as homeless numbers increase 12 percent.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released a report on homelessness for 2023. The department stated it assisted over 424,000 households in avoiding homelessness through 2023 grant programs, however, homelessness increased 12 percent in 2023 compared to 2022.

While funding for HUD grants increased by 15 percent between 2022 and 2023, which increased federal support for homeless service organizations and public housing agencies, the rise in homelessness in 2023 is the largest since 2007, when the nation began to publish comparison data.

HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge said that her department is attempting “to end homelessness by working with communities to get people into housing and provide the resources necessary to help prevent people from ever becoming homeless.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Fudge to be led by the Lord as she oversees the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
  • For HUD officials as they administer the housing programs and projects.
  • For the president and administration officials as they address the issue of homelessness.
  • For public and private officials and organizations trying to assist the homeless in America.
