The Department of Housing and Urban Development's mission is to increase homeownership, support community development and increase access to affordable housing free from discrimination. HUD fulfills this mission through high ethical standards, management and accountability, and by forming partnerships with community organizations.
During Fiscal Year 2007, the Department did not receive any complaints under Title IX. The Department does not anticipate any complaints in Fiscal Year 2008.

Any person believing he/she has been subjected to a discriminatory action on the basis of sex may file a complaint with the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Criteria for Selecting Proposals
John Brothers, Principal of Quidoo Consulting, writes about the Montreal-based company Bixi who are mostly known for its Bixi Bikes. Just recently, Bixi filed for bankruptcy protection. The reason? Bixi is in major financial distress and its bikes have proven to be too “expensive to build, operate and maintain”.
