The article discusses the Housing Opportunities for People Everywhere (HOPE VI), a public housing program in the U.S. Under the program of federal grants, public housing projects will be replaced by new mixed income communities. The new housing has meant less crime and more economic activity, but has also raised concerns to people living in the old housing projects. People displaced from a HOPE VI site will be relocated on other public housing or housing in a private sector, depending on their preference. The impact of HOPE VI on original residents was undertaken by the Urban Institute to monitor relocation services offered to displaced households. Opportunity communities through the Section 8 voucher and the reoccupancy eligibility of displaced residents are discussed.
