    The only way HUD will have a positive impact is if local community leaders work with HUD efforts and staff to act towards positive impact. It goes beyond a financial issue. Consider all the issues our country has had with law enforcement, especially in areas where HUD efforts are. Or consider the job market and transportation needs to get people to meaningful work. And consider the level of change that individuals that need assistance are willing to make in their own lives. The interconnectedness of change goes way beyond HUD efforts alone. It will come down to local support in our inner cities to see a combined positive impact.
