HUD Working to Make Public Housing “Book-Rich Environments”

The BRE Initiative seeks to improve literacy outcomes and to ensure all young people, regardless of their background, have the tools they need to reach their full potential. Led by the National Book Foundation, the initiative includes the combined efforts of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Education (ED), the Urban Libraries Council, and the National Center for Families Learning.
