The 1949 Housing Act committed government to provide "a decent home and suitable environment for every American family." Students and researchers in urban studies, sociology, and economics can utilize this unique microfiche program to evaluate and analyze the practical results and bureaucratic realities of America's housing program.

Housing and Urban Affairs was filmed from the holdings of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Washington, D.C. The collection contains surveys conducted by HUD or by HUD-sponsored private agencies and concentrates on making these significant but otherwise difficult-to-acquire items available. The collection also includes a separate series for studying housing as a social phenomenon--Housing in the Seventies Working Papers, Volume I and II: National Housing Policy Review Study Papers.

The wide range of subjects covered in this collection has been organized into major interest categories for easy access. Covered are such topics as:


  • the building industry
  • federal housing programs
  • fair housing
  • historic preservation and restoration
  • housing for the elderly and handicapped
  • urban renewal
  • mortgage finance
  • taxation
  • state planning
  • neighborhood rehabilitation

Colleges, universities, public libraries, real estate firms, planning commissions, construction firms, and research institutions will find that this collection provides authoritative literature focusing on housing and urban renewal issues of academic and public concern. Updated to 1980.
