The Other Side Of HOPE VI
"The intention: create a federal program to revitalize public housing and its residents. The result: more costly homes, tighter admission standards, a new class of residents and questions about what became of the former ones...Critics of HOPE VI have long complained that the program is contributing to a shortage of affordable housing by tearing down more units than it rebuilds. Tougher readmission standards make it harder for former residents to get back in."
