The most comprehensive compilation and analysis of the federal housing program HOPE VI has been completed by the National Initiative on Mixed-Income Communities (NIMC).
The overarching research question of this study, which covers the period from 1993 to 2014, is: What is the income and tenure mix of housing units that have been produced through the HOPE VI program? Income and tenure mix data provide insight into the nature of the mixed-income developments produced with HOPE IV funding. Results of the data analysis also shed the light on the potential impact mixed-income development had on residents and communities. Authors of the report are Taryn Gress, MSSA, Project Manager of NIMC; Seungjong Cho, PhD Candidate; and Mark Joseph, PhD, Director of NIMC and Associate Professor.
