HUD offices to furlough six days through Aug.


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will implement furlough days several times now through August. The first closure will be Friday. The furloughs are a result of governmentwide automatic spending cuts that took effect on March 1. The Department anticipates the need to close and suspend operations for an additional six days over the remainder of the current fiscal year.

The closures are expected to continue on June 14, July 5 and 22, Aug. 2, 16 and 30.

HUD has an office in Honolulu, which will be affected by the closures.
