The Sound of Ideas Community Tour: Public Housing in Cleveland
Please note, this event has expired.
The Sound of Ideas Community Tour brings 90.3 WCPN ideastream’s radio show out of the studio and into neighborhoods across Northeast Ohio to talk directly with residents about issues that are important to them.
The first public housing authority in the nation was established in Cleveland in the 1930s, and today the city has more than 9,000 subsidized units across the city and its inner ring suburbs. That’s twice as many as in Cincinnati and five times as many as in Columbus. Yet while much optimism and promise surrounded these neighborhoods’ construction, today public housing in Cleveland and throughout the U.S. faces dwindling federal funding, deteriorating buildings and negative stereotypes.
