Sonia Watson in her car at Orchard Beach in the Bronx. Her Section 8 housing voucher provided stability for 18 years, but now she's homeless and staying with friends.

WNYC urban affairs reporter Cindy Rodriguez, the Data News Team's Jenny Ye, and freelance investigative reporter Lisa Riordan-Seville take an in-depth look at the most popular and successful low-income housing program in the country - Section 8 - and discover how it’s working and how it’s not in New York City.

→ Listen to Part One of their report: you'll also see a few data visualizations of voucher tenants in New York City. And keep an ear out for parts 2 and 3 later this week!
