The Housing Authority has undertaken the most comprehensive plan in the City's history to improve the physical conditions of its units and to expand the number of affordable housing units. The initial grant of $29 million was supplemented with more than $93 million raised from other sources, such as low-income tax credits, state-re-development resources, and Brownfield Remediation Funds. Under the HOPE VI Program, the Authority demolished 655 units of dilapidated and outdated public housing stock and replaced it with brand new townhouse style units.   There are 5 new sites:

Portside Commons 79 Townhouses Family Site  
Westport Homes 57 Townhouses Family Site  
Marina Village 20 Townhouses Family Site  
Portside Commons II   79 Townhouses Family Site
