Friday’s Government Reports Roundup

By Jamila Moore

  • Homeless U.S. veterans in rural areas are receiving help from the state of Virginia and the federal government. This is in an effort to ensure veterans receive stable housing as well as maintain housing on their own.
  • The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recently awarded approximately 2 billion dollars to help mitigate some of the housing issues striking many homeless people throughout the country.
  • The Department of Justice (DOJ) is continuing to seek out banks that did not exhibit appropriate conduct during the mortgage crisis years ago. DOJ is suing Barclays for allegedly misleading investors in regards to mortgage-backed securities.
