Ken Davis is joined by Maya Dukmasova and Robin Amer of the Chicago Reader. Their recent report on what’s come to be called “super-vouchers” details the short-lived effort by the CHA to offer qualified voucher-holders a slightly higher monthly stipend to allow tenants to move into better buildings in safer neighborhoods.
