Transparency and Accountability:
Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada
To increase accountability, promote informed participation by the public and create economic opportunity; HUD is taking steps to expand access to information by making it available online. Publication of information is an essential component of transparency. To the extent practicable and subject to valid restrictions, HUD publishes information online in an open format. We use modern technology to disseminate useful information and specifically through websites.
Open Government Initiative
The Open Government Directive is an effort to implement the three principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration that form the cornerstone of an open government.

Physical Inspection Scores for HUD-Assisted Housing HUD's Real Estate Assessment Center completes physical inspections of HUD-subsidized and insured properties which consists of housing owned by public housing authorities and by private housing providers. About 20,000 such inspections are conducted annually to ensure that assisted families have housing that is decent, safe, sanitary, and in good repair. The release of this information on the physical condition of HUD-assisted housing stock and changes in it over time will be of particular interest to researchers, affordable housing advocates, and other stakeholders.
Co-sponsorship agreements are sometimes required when HUD jointly develops and participates in events with non-Federal entities. The Location Affordability Portal Version 2 Pre-Launch event—held on July 10th event in Los Angeles—was co-sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and the Los Angeles Business Council. A provision of the co-sponsorship agreements between HUD and those organizations was the requirement that the agreements be made publicly available. They are posted here to fulfil that requirement.
