From the Paper:

"The voucher program is probably the best way to cure the problems the housing system endured during the tenure of the projects. One of the main reasons why the voucher program would work is because it would save the taxpayers money. Since the projects were owned and run by the government, it cost money to build the buildings and keep them livable. Most cities had to form a new police division to strictly deal with problems in the projects. And since most of these funds were given by the federal government, it was affordable for city governments to run certain projects; however, today market forces and federal budget issues have drastically cut back on funds to local governments for public housing. With the voucher program, it allows cities to cut back on their expenses by allowing private landlords to handle the cost of maintaining and running their own buildings (U.S. News)."
