MAHCH io, SIILL FfiB Pll Federal Housing Participation United Stales, Far Behind Europe, Has Yet To Make Dent By WILLIS THOKNTON Ni;,\ Snviie Start Correspondent WASHINGTON, March H.-No- tody knoivs exactly what the United states has spent to build mid to encourage better housing tince 1932. Nobody know:; exactly what its accomplishments arc In that Held. Thai fact tells volumes aboul flic palchy anil fumllin^ fashion in which the United Slates Inv; ai.prcachcri a problem which countries like Great Britain have prrlty well solved. To cay that the aonroacli has been patchy and fumbling reflects no discredit on the administration of any of the various housing ef- lorts. II simply means lhat u'nlil the present United States Housing Authority was created, (here was no real frontal attack on the housing problem in the European .sense. The work of agencies like the RFC. PWA, FEllA, Resettlement, TV A, Faun Credit, FHA. HOLC. nnd a halt dozen others in the housing field has always been so closely mingled with other objectives that lo winnow out the pure housing clement in each, is a very tough job. It is a "breakdown" which many of them have not made at all. Go from agency to agency which has concerned itself with nomine, go to the Central Housing Committee which is loday coordinai- 1ns the work of eight government agencies more or less concerned with housing, and yon will nnd no central, final authority with complete summary figures oh all governmental housing activilies. However, enough can readily be learned lo present a rough picture whose outline clearly shows Hint as compared with the British accomplishments in the housing field, the United States lias not even 'as yet dcntert the problem. The ffcast picture of this scattering effort is presented uol by any governmental agency at all. but by the National Association of Housing • •Officials. This association, taking" a single part of the lioui- ing field, calculates the accomplishments in community-type projects of 15 or more living units receiving federal aid in- various forms, as follows: ! ivin? • : fpoinor Units U. S..Housing Authority- 'J ;•• (successor to PWA Hous- : ing Division :..2'l,665 Federal Housing Administration (rental housing division only) Farm Security Administration (successor lo Resettlement Administration) ... Miscellaneous, including WPA. RFC, TVA. and D. C. Alley Dwelling Authority -j.833 11,842 Total allotments ror USHA projects above, excluding limited dividend projects, has been 3134,033,- 400.2C. But don't rto any quick di- vidinj by the number of units r.rcducnrt to get the cost per unit. The allotment figures include a lot of other lliings beside housing cos I—breakdown not available. That's the way il is throughout the various agencies. For example, (he RFC. not primarily concerned with housing at all. has nevertheless boii?hl up many FT1A mortgages, and has a S2.00C.COI> interest in various largc- .•icalc city housing projects. Its liar, never teen "broken down" by the RFC. The Farm Security Administration. which started out. as Resettlement. has built 12.100 building units at a cost ol 362.000,000. But that includes barns, oiilbnildings iind community buiidinps, and does not include housing •1,327 9,012 NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF HOUSING OFFICIALS The of federal purUcipalion in housing :;ince lm is !
