Government Assisted Housing - Section 202 And Section 8, Historical Phases, Housing Needs In The Twenty-first Century

age low income public people

Government housing assistance is available to low-income older persons through three major programs: public housing, section 202, and section 8. These programs aim to relieve the housing burden of low-income families, older people, and persons with disabilities (regardless of age). There is no uniform public housing policy solely for older people in the United States. Historically, housing policies and programs were family centered; older people benefited from public subsidies through having low-income or belonging to members of a low-income family. The Housing Act of 1937 resolved to improve the housing standards of those families who could not afford to buy or rent in the private market.
