The rise in cost of land, housing construction and financing over recent decades has seriously reduced the number of those eligible for home loans. These and other cost factors are carefully analyzed and a variety of workable solutions set forth to enlarge the supply of affordable housing for a greater share in the American dream of a home of your own or at least a decent, safe and sanitary rental unit. The workload of this essential undertaking is projected to the end of this century in both the low income family housing needs and the increasing elderly shelter requirements. The planners, engineers, developers, financiers and officials who present the papers in these Proceedings explore ideas that are working to house the below market home owner and renter through financing innovations, cooperatives, leased state land, new communities and a host of recommendations in the elderly housing categories.
