The Next Challenge for Public Housing

The Urban Institute is holding a panel to address some of the future challenges critical for policymakers considering public housing. In the era of HOPE VI revitalization programs some residents have been left behind as the country’s most severely distressed public housing developments are replaced with mixed-income and private market housing options. Former residents with physical and mental health problems, weak employment histories, low literacy levels, drug or alcohol addiction, criminal histories, and serious credit problems are not seeing the benefits of the HOPE VI program. The panel will provide insight on options to serve vulnerable families - as local housing authorities, states and the federal government work to improve housing options across communities. The Chicago Family Case Management Demonstration will be used to provide an example of innovative options for moving forward.

To register for the March 11th, webinar of this panel.
