Describes community events, activities, and attitudes in St. Joseph County, Indiana, that may affect HUD's experimental housing allowance program. The Note gives a statistical overview of program operations; summarizes important events affecting the program; describes reaction to the program from several organized community groups; and compares community assessment of the program in Green Bay and South Bend. The Note then covers issues pertinent to the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment (one element of the experimental housing allowance program) concerning supply response to the program and the role of market intermediaries in the community. Next, the Note presents special site monitor studies on community organizations in South Bend. An appendix provides a sampler of local press clippings from the South Bend Tribune on community reaction to the program.
