This article examines the opportunities and constraints encountered in attempts to provide housing for low-income Black families through the Gautreaux program. This examination begins with an analysis of the violation and remedy in both the Chicago Housing Authority and Housing and Urban Development cases. Professor Rubinowitz then reports on the implementation of the Gautreaux program over the last fifteen years, discussing the reasons why interest in the program grew and why the supply of housing available to these families did not.
