Since the early 1990s, HOPE VI has been the United States' largest and most ambitious community regeneration programme. It sought to both refurbish rundown social housing and to provide funding for supportive services for residents. This paper presents findings from the HOPE VI Panel Study on how residents have fared. The research shows that the programme has had profound benefits for many public housing families, particularly those who relocated to less poor communities.
