Public Housing: Background and Issues $152.00
Editors: Sara M. Larsen
Book Description:
The idea of a federal public housing program began taking shape in the 1930s during the Great Depression. Its purpose was intended to be twofold: the housing created would respond to a lack of sanitary housing available at a low cost to families who had fallen on hard times, and the construction of the housing would lead to the creation of jobs and economic growth. However, the idea of the federal government providing housing proved to be controversial. This book examines the history of the federal housing program; current policy issues; how it is administered and funded and the characteristics of public housing properties and the households they serve.
