Reviews the relationships between HUD's new national program of housing assistance to low-income renter households (Sec. 8 of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, as amended) and the experimental housing allowance programs now under way in Brown County, Wisconsin, and South Bend, Indiana. Specifically it compares income limits for participation in the two housing assistance programs and the levels of benefits available to different classes of renter households under each program. The comparisons are intended to aid HUD in evaluating problems that may arise from concurrent operation of Sec. 8 and the experimental allowance program in the two experimental sites.
