Describes the principal features (as of August 1973) of the housing allowance program being developed as part of the HUD-sponsored Housing Assistance Supply Experiment (HASE), which was undertaken to help determine whether a national direct-cash housing allowance program for low-income renters and homeowners would be preferable to existing housing subsidy programs. General topics discussed include program standards and funding; program description; development plan; and the HUD actions required to develop and implement the allowance program. Appendixes include a glossary of terms; descriptions of key program factors; comparisons with other experimental housing allowance programs; program staff administrative details; and welfare shelter payments for Brown County, Wisconsin, Site I in HASE.
