SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Gov. Jon Huntsman is one of three governors who will receive a national award for combating homelessness.

The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness will honor Huntsman on Thursday. He will receive the council's Home for Every American Governor Award.

The council is praising Huntsman for his efforts to create partnerships to end homelessness. Utah's 10-year plan to end chronic homelessness began in 2005.

Govs. John Hoeven of North Dakota and Bob Riley of Alabama are the other recipients.
