From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Nearly 150 units of public housing in Milwaukee are slated to be converted from traditional projects to vouchers this year in a major shift for the Milwaukee Housing Authority — a move housing advocates say should help families plagued by housing insecurity.
Under the Housing Choice Voucher program, tenants pay 30% to 40% of rents and the Housing Authority subsidizes the rest.
This program represents one of the best social safety nets for low-income families, housing experts say, but it also needs major reform to work as well in practice as it does in theory.
