About Public Housing

In 1937, President Franklin Roosevelt and the U.S. Congress came to the realization that many people were struggling to put roofs over their heads that they could afford.  The Great Depression and also the “Dust Bowl” era caused much of this problem, but it was also recognition of a little understood problem regarding homeless or barely-surviving people living in the United States.  The Public Housing Act of 1937 established public housing for ordinary Americans and also included separate consideration for American Indians.  Later the program was expanded to allow Section 8 housing so low-income individuals could live in areas of their choice.
