U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson will be in Little Rock tomorrow, the office of congressman French Hill confirmed this afternoon.

Carson and Hill will tour Our House, the shelter for working homeless families and individuals on Roosevelt Road, at 12:15 p.m.


I’m awaiting word on whether the secretary will make any other public appearances.

Carson made headlines last week for announcing proposed changes that would require higher rent payments from low-income families receiving housing assistance and pave the way for local housing authorities to implement work requirements to receive benefits.
