The USHA was created by the Housing / Wagner-Steagall Act of 1937 (Pub.L. 75–412, 50 Stat. 888, enacted September 1, 1937). It has been reorganized and regrouped many times over the past seventy plus years. Today the Department of Housing and Urban Development carries on it’s functions.
USHA provided subsidies from the U.S. government to local public housing agencies to improve living conditions for low-income families.
Living quarters for over 600,000 low income (often homeless) individuals were started in multiple localities. The programs created helped establish the direction of federal housing policy for the next 10 years, leading to the creation of the urban renewal program.
Look for records of projects at the local, regional, state and national level.
