EnVision Centers

HUD provides the EnVision Center Community with assistance and resources to support their growth and continued success. Through the EnVision Center Demonstration, HUD partners with federal agencies with the goal of promoting and connecting the federal government’s critical resources and programs and most up-to-date information to EnVision Centers and other HUD community stakeholders.

Designated EnVision Centers receive access to high-quality webinars that are presented by government subject matter experts to support community-based organizations as they assist their clients in achieving the four pillars of self-sufficiency: Economic Empowerment, Educational Advancement, Health and Wellness, and Character and Leadership. Moreover, EnVision Centers receive a plethora of technical assistance from HUD as well as publicly available resources from federal partners, such as guides, fact sheets, and multimedia public service announcements to complement their own outreach and programming.
