Statement by HUD Secretary Steve Preston on transition effortsMortgagePress.comHUD, Barack Obama, Steve Preston, iMPACT 200
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Steve Preston
issued the following statement reaffirming the agency's commitment
to a seamless transition of operations to the next Administration.
Preston has made a smooth transition a priority of his iMPACT 200
"For several months, HUD has been aggressively working toward a
seamless Agency transition. We have established a team of 22
knowledgeable, senior career officials to work with incoming
personnel. The team has set up a fully equipped, professional
transition office and it has also developed comprehensive briefing
materials, including employee recommendations and Web-based tools
to access critical information.
HUD's ongoing efforts to help stabilize the housing market, keep
families in their homes, reduce chronic homeless, and provide
public housing residents with reasonable accommodations are too
important not to ensure a seamless handoff. We owe a smooth,
transparent transition to the millions of Americans that depend on
HUD. We also owe Americans our best efforts to finish what we have
started and support the success of the team that follows. We are
committed to doing this during the two months that remain."
