Summary & key findings: The Urban Initiative is the evaluator for the Taunton (MA) Housing Authority’s HOPE VI project. This project involves replacing distressed public housing with two new developments while providing supportive services to the residents of the now-demolished Fairfax Gardens. This baseline evaluation integrates an analysis of secondary data related to the neighborhood’s population, housing, and economic conditions with data collected from surveys of both HOPE VI residents and residents of the surrounding neighborhood.
