Description

Chicago ranks number one in the nation in failed public housing. The CHA may be forced to relocate about 34,000 residents to rent-subsidized private housing, though the agency has neither the money nor the affordable housing to do it. We found its most distressed developments would cost more than a billion dollars to repair. Under a federal mandate issued last year, the CHA would have to demolish 18,000 units if the agency found they were costlier to maintain than to offer the families housing vouchers.
