The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has developed and implemented a new system of assessment, monitoring, and enforcement to ensure the quality of the HUD-assisted housing stock. The design of the new system addresses longstanding concerns with the Department’s ability to fulfill its statutory mandate, as set out in the Housing Act of 1937, to provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing in good repair.

Chapter 1 explains why HUD’s new system of monitoring and enforcement was needed, how it is structured, and what it has accomplished. Chapter 2 explains how the new system works, Chapter 3 discusses some of its accomplishments, and Chapter 4 presents baseline data on HUD-assisted housing provided from the first year of physical inspections under the Assessment Center.
