Abstract: During the ten-year period that occurs between available Census data for the Fairfield Court HUD project baseline (1999) and data in this report (2009), the nation in general, and Stamford in particular, experienced a strong housing bubble, evidenced by new construction and strong increases in market value and assessed value, even in the less well-to-do HOPE VI neighborhood. In this decade when all areas developed into more diverse communities, HOPE VI residents in the eastern-most Tract 215 experienced upward movement in their Median Income, even though poverty also increased by 1% in the decade. Residents on the western side of Stamford, median income declined by 25% although poverty also declined.
