HUD Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships developed a fact sheet on human trafficking. Though HUD has no enforcement authority or program responsibility in this area, the Center is sharing this information to raise awareness about the issue. You and members of your community can play an important role in identifying and ending human trafficking. To ensure your safety and the safety of possible victims, contact a service provider or law enforcement official – do not undertake investigations on your own. Any questions or requests for assistance should be directed to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations (ICE HIS) Tip Line at: 866-347-2423.
The Southeast Community Outreach Initiative is here to serve as a resource for educational, faith-based, and non-profit organizations interested in addressing the housing and community development needs of the neighborhoods in which you operate.

The much anticipated foreclosure prevention initiative, HomeSafe Georgia formerly known as the Hardest Hit Program has officially launched. Funding for the HomeSafe Georgia comes from the U.S. Department of Treasury's Hardest Hit Fund. The purpose of the program is to help Georgia homeowners who have experienced job loss or a substantial decrease in their income with a mortgage payment bridge while they find new or better employment.
