This brief explores the self-reported health of residents living in neighborhoods served by the first five Choice Neighborhoods implementation grantees. We examine health of residents living in the five target developments and residents living within the five Choice boundaries (“surrounding neighborhood”) during the baseline survey. It lays the groundwork for understanding how redevelopment may affect the health of target development residents. We find residents of the public housing developments tend to report worse health conditions than residents of project-based Section 8 developments.
