The Meyner Center was commissioned by the Housing Authority of Easton (HACE) in 2007 to provide an in-depth evaluation of its redevelopment of the Delaware Terrace/Annex housing project in Easton under a $20 million HOPE VI grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Center’s four-year analysis is measuring and analyzing accomplishment of the program’s goals as well as the experiences of the Delaware Terrace/Annex’s former residents and the program’s impacts on neighborhoods surrounding this revitalization effort. As part of this revitalization project, HACE will demolish all 250 existing dwelling units in the Delaware Terrace/Annex housing project and build approximately 96 rental units and 48 homes for individual ownership.
