Housing Matters blog debuts

Housing Matters has transitioned from a bi-monthly electronic newsletter to a blog.

After publishing nearly 40 issues of our newsletter over the past six years, we've retooled Housing Matters to make it more dynamic and timely.

From now on, we'll publish stories in blog format — posting individual stories online as soon as they're written.

The new format will allow us to publish housing news and matters of interest more quickly than our old bi-monthly format.
