Abstract

This article begins with an examination of the evolution of the federal government's predominant role in collecting and spending revenues for social programs, including housing. It traces the growth of federal spending, and the evolution of federally assisted programs for housing. It continues with an analysis of the trend toward block grants and housing allowances, and concludes by commenting on this trend's effect on the future of housing programs for households with limited incomes.
