OUR CORE VALUES

Integrity

is consistently practicing honesty and fairness with an uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values. We rely upon these principles to guide our actions and decisions no matter how small they may seem.

Accountability

is taking responsibility for the outcomes of decisions and actions and being able to explain the reasoning to stakeholders affected by them. We are mindful that as an independent agency, we answer to Congress, HUD, and the American people for our work.

Diversity

is honoring, respecting, and proactively including individuals of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and life experiences while providing equal access and fostering a sense of value and empowerment in employees. We consciously put forth efforts, behaviors, policies, and norms to make all individuals feel seen, heard, and valued.

Courage

is doing what one thinks is right despite difficulty, personal sacrifice, or discomfort. We speak the truth even as a dissenting voice, lead even in the face of resistance, and take the initiative to try something new even if we fear we don’t have the answers or may fail.
