Description

Shalhoup reports on how the renovation of eight public housing complexes "drifted off course - barring hundreds of poor families from decent housing and making room for middle-class tenants who pay full rent." The second story shows the fate of the displaced poor families, who received vouchers for reduced rent, and ended up in living in substandard buildings. The "negligence resulted in 50 families falling ill in one Section 8 apartment complex, due to a severe mold infection."
