PHA President and CEO on Dr. Ben Carson as next HUD Secretary

(PHILADELPHIA-December 5, 2016) - I look forward to working with Dr. Carson in his new role. His life story, rising from poverty to become a renowned thought leader across several disciplines, is very compelling and gives him a special understanding of the residents we serve.

We anticipate that under his leadership, HUD will continue to play a major role in eradicating homelessness and using innovative programs such as Moving to Work, Choice Neighborhoods, the Rental Assistance Demonstration and other vital initiatives to support neighborhood revitalization, strengthen low-income communities and address the housing needs of citizens with disabilities, low-income seniors and families in Philadelphia.
