US city banks on house-buying scheme

Gary giving away houses for $1 each in bid to bring back residents who left when manufacturing collapsed.

Gary, in the US state of Indiana, is reviving a house-buying scheme to bring the city back to life.

It was hit hard by the collapse of the region’s manufacturing industry. That had forced thousands to move elsewhere in search of jobs and homes.
