Intergenerational Housing Needs and HUD Program Options: Report to Congress
AbstractThis report addresses a Congressional mandate for "a study to determine an estimate of the number of covered families in the United States and their affordable housing needs" and includes "recommendations...regarding how the major assisted housing programs of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, including the supportive housing for the elderly program under Section 202 of the Housing Act of 1959 can be used and, if appropriate, amended or altered, to meet the affordable housing needs of covered families." The study, conducted by HUD and the Bureau of the Census, uses 2000 Census and American Housing Survey data to clarify the housing issues faced by grandparents and other relatives who accept the responsibility of providing care for minor children.
