Overview

 The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is one of the U.S. government's most important and complex agencies. It has evolved into its present powerful form through a series of predecessor agencies beginning with the creation of the Federal Housing Agency in 1934.

This microfiche collection offers students in urban affairs and planning, political science, government, and communications an unusual overview of HUD through its official newsletters, press releases, and press digests.

For researchers, this authoritative literature covers virtually every federal program and policy relating to housing and urban affairs. The collection begins with the creation of the Federal Housing Administration (1934) and follows its transformation into the United States Housing Authority (1937), the Housing and Home Finance Agency (1947), through the current Department of Housing and Urban Development created in 1965.

Among the milestone HUD programs included are:

 

  • low-rent housing and slum clearance (1937)
  • rehabilitation loans (1964)
  • "Fair Housing" (1968)

More than 60,000 pages are covered by the base collection and the 1979 update to this collection, which were filmed from the holdings of the Library of the Department of Housing and Urban Development in Washington, D.C.
