HUD OFFICES TO CLOSE NATIONWIDE ON FRIDAY, MAY 24TH
Seven furlough days to be paired with holidays & weekends to ease impact
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is notifying the public today that it will close its offices nationwide on Friday, May 24th as a result of government-wide automatic spending cuts that took effect on March 1, 2013. HUD will resume normal operation on Tuesday, May 28th, following the Memorial Day federal holiday. We encourage those with business in HUD offices to plan accordingly.
HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. HUD is working to strengthen the housing market to bolster the economy and protect consumers; meet the need for quality affordable rental homes: utilize housing as a platform for improving quality of life; build inclusive and sustainable communities free from discrimination; and transform the way HUD does business.
