Abstract

This paper gives an analysis of the causes of the high level of vacancies in the various housing projects of the Atlanta Housing Authority. Problems related to overall management, repairs, maintenance and leasing process are seen as factors contributing to the vacancies.

Recommendations are offered to correct the problems. Included among the recommendations is a complete revamping of the process by which prospective tenants ascend to eligibility for choosing or rejecting available units.
