On Monday, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia L. Fudge announced her resignation, effective March 22, 2024.

“It has always been my belief that government can and should work for the people,” Fudge said. “For the last three years, I have fully embraced HUD’s mission to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.”

From her confirmation hearing when she called manufactured housing an “outstanding option” to calling for there to be incentives for communities to encourage manufactured homes in House testimony, Secretary Fudge ensured manufactured housing was included in HUD housing initiatives during her tenure. Under her leadership, HUD hosted two Innovative Housing Showcases and highlighted manufactured housing at these marquee events and she elevated the Office of Manufactured Housing Programs to a stand-alone office.

President Biden thanked Secretary Fudge for her service and Federal Housing Finance Agency Director Sandra Thompson expressed gratitude for Secretary Fudge’s leadership and partnership.

MHI looks forward to continuing our relationship with Deputy Secretary Adrianne Todman as she begins her service as Acting Secretary later this month.

The following video includes a few of our favorite moments with Secretary Fudge during her term.
