National and rural housing policy : historical development and emerging issues
"Since rural America has become much more like urban America in the last 50 years, it is hardly surprising that the housing problems of rural America are much the same as those facing urban America. Nevertheless, there are differences between rural and urban areas in the comparative importance of these problems. For example, more houses in rural areas are occupied by their owners, so ownership policies are comparatively more important to rural residents. This report provides the historical background and current choices facing housing policymakers for each of these critical policy areas, and concludes with an exploration of the special problems facing rural America."
