Description

Millions of Americans can’t afford rent and only a quarter of those who need government help get it. What happens to everyone else? For many, it means they live in squalor. But figuring out who’s responsible is harder than you think. In this episode of the FRONTLINE DISPATCH, NPR correspondent Laura Sullivan heads to Dallas where the city, low income residents and a prominent landlord sometimes described as a slumlord, become the moving pieces in a century-and-a-half old problem.



This episode was done in collaboration with NPR.

why not look into code regulations. some towns have no code requirements and seem to do fine. is there any flexilbility on code based on income. codes are necessary but largely inflexible and bound by bureaucrats in bureaucracy

it is the end of the story, at least the end of listening to your waffle.

You folks seem to try and sound like there is a fair balance to each story. It's like you are liars.
