FRONTLINE + NPR On America's Housing Crisis -- "Poverty, Politics and Profit"

We need to keep focused on how budget priorities are not just national but local.

Good old philanthropy reveals that public money for housing gets siphoned off.

I hope this series does more than "explore."

In a nine-month investigation that takes them from Dallas to Miami, to an upscale resort in Costa Rica, FRONTLINE’s Rick Young and NPR’s Laura Sullivan explore why jus"t one in four households eligible for Section 8 assistance is getting it, and why the nation’s signature low-income housing construction program is costing more and producing less.

“Poverty, Politics and Profit” premieres Tues. May 9th at 10 p.m. EST / 9 p.m. CST on PBS and online: http://to.pbs.org/2mLjskO
