Inclusive Public Housing: Services for the Hard to House

The Urban Institute recently released a paper about providing case management for households in public housing. The paper, entitled Inclusive Public Housing: Services for the Hard to House, examines how intensive case management is being used to support households in public housing in Chicago who are expected to transition to new housing units. As the Chicago Public Housing Agency moved to demolish large public housing developments, many households moved into new mixed-income developments or received vouchers and moved into housing in the community. The Urban Institute's paper reviews how the Chicago Case Management Model provides intensive case management services and a broader array of support services to households and follows them as they transition to new housing. The authors propose a typology of the households that they suggest could be used to tailor and target more intensive services.
