Lots to cover in today’s round-up, so let’s jump right in:
HUD released its Annual Homelessness Assessment Report Tuesday, which found that while homelessness increased in rural areas in 2010, it rose only slightly overall despite the tough economy. You can find the complete report here.
Another study found the homeless population in Los Angeles County has actually decreased over the past two years.
Speaking of saving energy at home, Howard County, Md., is offering free energy audits to show how houses can be more efficient, thanks to funding from the federal stimulus.
Finally, an Alabama landlord is getting a few lessons in fair housing this week – about 50,000 of them to be exact – after he discriminated against a family because of an interracial relationship. Check back with the HUDdle for more on this case in the future.
