The paper presents briefly the situation of the social housing market in general, with accents on the Romanian situation, in the contexts of a mortgage crisis in the United States and of a need to adhere to the European level of dwelling supply. The need for financing of a social housing system, through various means is obvious, mostly when the conclusion of the paper is that there are no recent studies on the Romanian market (the latest publicly available study being conducted in 2004, before the crises and the increases in the prices of the houses). The paper is considering a series of solutions for financing a social housing system, having in view a series of articles on the subject.
