Data Background

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is a department of the Federal Government enacted to secure affordable housing for all Americans. With numerous housing assistance programs available, HUD acts to support home ownership, access to affordable housing free from discrimination, and community development.

This indicator reports counts of all housing units receiving assistance through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Assistance programs include Section 8 housing choice vouchers, Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation and New Construction, public housing projects, and other multifamily assistance projects. Units receiving Low Income Housing Tax Credit assistance are excluded from this summary. Data are from the 2013 Picture of Subsidized Households database, released annually by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. The most recent version of the database contains data on all properties placed into service through 2010. The data contained within describes the nearly 5 million households living in HUD-subsidized housing in the United States. Characteristics of assisted housing units and residents are available summarized at the national, state, public housing agency (PHA), project, census tract, county, Core-Based Statistical Area and city levels.
