The Lubbock Housing and Urban Development plans to close it's Lubbock office.
HUD is realigning staff resources, leaving Lubbock's six-person office on the chopping block.
Nationwide, HUD plans to close 16 of its 80 field offices, affecting approximately 120 employees who will be offered transfers.
It is anticipated the offices will be closed by early fiscal year 2014.
The move will result in administrative savings, estimated from $110 million to $150 million in lease and operating costs over a 10-year period.
The Fort Worth office will handle Lubbock operations when office is closed next year.
