Housing Assistance and Supportive Services in Memphis. Relocatee Housing Assistance Type and Neighborhoods

01/05/2013

Map 6 (below) shows that HOPE VI relocatee households with HCV are more dispersed than relocatee households overall. These relocatee households with HCVs follow a similar pattern to the overall population of MHA HCV-holding households (Map 4), with a bit more central concentration.

Relocatees who receive MHA housing assistance but do not hold housing choice vouchers live in new HOPE VI mixed-income developments, Foote Homes (the only remaining traditional family public housing development in Memphis), or elderly and disabled public housing buildings near the former public housing developments, whereas HCV-holders can move to any area where they can find appropriate, affordable housing with a landlord who will accept a voucher. Map 5 (above) shows, the full population of HOPE VI relocatee households are concentrated in the communities around their original public housing development.

A large majority (68.9 percent) of HOPE VI relocatee households use HCVs. A small portion—just 9.3 percent—live in Foote homes, and a slightly larger portion live in elderly and disabled public housing developments (11.3 percent). Under four percent (3.8 percent) live in new HOPE VI mixed income developments, though this number may be higher in reality than the available data show, as these developments are new and the Lamar Terrace and Dixie Homes relocatee data were only updated as long as the relocatees remained in case management.
