FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Housing Corp. is reporting that the number of homeless in Kentucky now stands at nearly 2,400, down significantly from past years.

The latest count was released Wednesday by the state's housing agency. It covered 118 counties. The state's more urban Fayette and Jefferson counties were excluded.

The count, conducted on Jan. 30, identified 2,392 homeless men, women, and children. The overall number has been declining since 2008 when 4,027 homeless were counted.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which provides funding to the Kentucky Housing Corp., is required to do a homeless count at least every two years. The count is required to take place on a single night during the last 10 days of January.
