WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- The homeless population in Michigan is getting smaller.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has put out new figures and notes an 11.7-percent drop in Michigan now compared to January 2010.  Social workers and volunteers counted homeless Americans on one night in January of this year and found a drop nationwide of just over six-percent.

Across the country, the number of homeless veterans fell by 24.2-percent over the three-year period.
