DESCRIPTION

This comprehensive coursebook addresses fundamental issues in housing and community development such as the manner of policy development, the impacts of political considerations on housing policy, and the limitations on the adequacy of funding commitments for housing development. Highly adaptable for a diversity of course formats, Housing and Community Development answers the questions: What is the ongoing "social dialogue" about housing needs? Why do we develop housing policy the way we do and why does the way we develop policy affect the roles of governmental, public, and private entities as well as the rights and benefits of housing consumers? Is there or should there be a right to housing? How can we provide adequate decent housing and revitalize communities? What have we done in the past? What are we doing at present? The six-chapter book begins with a "perspectives" approach to housing and community development problems, issues, and policies and then moves to an examination of the institutional setting for housing and community development. The third and fourth chapters cover major housing approaches, tenant protections, and the "consumerism" issues in private, public, and quasi-private "assisted" housing. Chapter 5 covers the legal and policy origins of community revitalization while chapter 6 explores problems of access to housing through statutory protections on discrimination. Daye presents a comprehensive but concise treatment of the fundamental issues in housing and community development - problems, issues, policies, laws, and processes.
