Description

For the past few years, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has been offering millions of dollars in federal housing grants to allow housing authorities to demolish and rebuild their worst housing stock, through a program called HOPE VI. In the wake of major federal cuts to HUD, public housing agencies across the nation have been scrambling to obtain what may be the last federal money allotted to housing refurbishment for a long time. San Francisco has applied for and received almost $100 million in the past three years. While renovations are completed, as many as 3,000 public housing residents will be relocated form their homes. The Bay Guardian finds that because of a shortage of affordable housing, it has become extremely difficult for public housing residents to find adequate housing in the city.
