Previewing the impact of the HUD Secretary appointment
Amidst reports that President-elect Donald Trump is considering Ben Carson for appointment as the next Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, media outlets, including Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight and The Atlantic, have highlighted the critical role of HUD in shaping the nation’s housing policies.

 The FiveThirtyEight article calls HUD “one of the most important” agencies in the federal government, and highlights HUD’s wide-reaching influence in fighting poverty, stabilizing the U.S. mortgage market and furthering fair housing goals. The Atlantic article describes the risk of undermining the fair housing accomplishments of the Obama administration. Nixon Peabody will continue to identify issues of interest for the housing industry as we move through the transition process.
