Agencies Release Report on HOPE VI Program

Friday, July 26, 2002 - 7:00AM

The National Housing Law Project (NHLP), in cooperation with the Poverty & Race Research Action Council, Sherwood Research Associates and Everywhere and Now Public Housing Residents Organizing Nationally Together (ENPHRONT), this week released a report, “False HOPE: A Critical Assessment of the HOPE VI Public Housing Redevelopment Program,” which NHLP says identifies “serious shortcomings and inconsistencies in HUD’s administration of the HOPE VI public housing redevelopment program.” The report examines available HUD publications, General Accounting Office and Office of Inspector General program audits and other documents to trace HUD’s HOPE VI track record on the awarding of grants, citizen participation in redevelopment efforts, family relocation, data reporting and other issues, and proposes concrete reforms.
