HP Streamlines HUD Housing Discrimination Complaints With New Mobile Application 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 --  HP (NYSE: HPQ) -- HP
Enterprise Services today announced that it has developed a mobile
application for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
The new application allows citizens to easily access useful
information regarding housing discrimination, file complaints with
HUD and find regional contact information via their iPhone.  
Working together with HUD and its Office of Fair Housing and Equal
Opportunity (FHEO), HP developed the Housing Discrimination Complaint
Application, which will be one of the first mobile applications
released to the public by HUD. The application is now available to
the public on the App Store(SM) and accessible on Apple devices such
as the iPhone, iPad(R), and iPod touch(R). HUD also plans to release
an Android version of the application. 
Specifically designed to streamline and simplify interaction with the

"We are pleased to work with HP to create the first federal civil
rights complaint mobile application," said John Trasvina, assistant
secretary, Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development. "We are maximizing 21st-century
technology to promote understanding and enforcement of our fair
housing laws and help our civil rights and housing industry partners
know their rights and responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act." 
The application is a first step in extending HUD computing solutions
from the desktop to mobile devices of all types. It also enables HUD
to fulfill the digital strategy requirements set by the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) for developing mobile technologies. 
"HUD needed an efficient and reliable solution to quickly extend
existing capabilities to mobile computing devices," said Marilyn
Crouther, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. Public
Sector, HP Enterprise Services. "The new HP application achieves
operational goals of HUD -- from concept to deployment -- while more
effectively addressing discrimination complaints. The mobile app
simplifies and increases access to government services for people."
