Most HOPE VI residents have not moved back. The largest number of families 43 percent - received Housing Choice Vouchers, and another third were still living in traditional public housing. Just five percent were living in mixed-income communities - a number likely to increase as the sites are completed. Residents who have moved to the private market or to mixed-income developments reported substantial improvements in the quality of their housing and are living in neighborhoods that are considerably lower poverty. In contrast, those who remained in traditional public housingeither their original development or a different oneexperienced virtually no improvement in housing quality over time.
