Susan Popkin's testimony, presented to the Financial Services Committee, provides a brief history of the HOPE VI program, outlines the program's goals, and reports on recent findings from two Urban Institute studies: The HOPE VI Panel Study, which is tracking the living conditions and well being of residents from five developments who were surveyed as revitalization began in mid- to late 2001. The HOPE VI Resident Tracking Study provides a snapshot of the living conditions and well being of former residents of eight properties in early 2001-between two and seven years after the housing authority received a HOPE VI grant.
