Public Housing in Huntsville
The Huntsville Housing Authority has been quietly buying up apartment buildings in the city to spread out the people currently in public housing. Section 8 vouchers will be used to pay for a lot of them to live in this new subsidized housing. There has been a great deal of angst about this as the city has not told people where the new concentrations of residents will be. Also people currently living in the apartments will be forced to leave if they make too much money. The Huntsville Times reports on the issue here. The answer to their question, as The Atlantic found out, is probably yes.
