Contains the full text of the handbook governing the administration of the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment (HASE) housing allowance programs. Chapters 1 through 3 define basic institutional arrangements and terms and conditions of program assistance (e.g., household eligibility criteria, housing standards, assistance formula). Chapters 4 through 9 contain guidelines for administrative support activities (e.g., personnel and financial management). Chapters 10 through 18 cover rules and procedures for specific program functions (e.g., enrollment, income verification, housing evaluation, payments processing). In the past, the program handbook has been readily accessible only to those directly involved in HASE. It is being published as a RAND Note to make it available to other audiences, particularly researchers seeking a more comprehensive basis for interpreting HASE findings and designers and managers of other programs with similar administrative requirements.

This report is part of the RAND note series. The note was a product of RAND from 1979 to 1993 that reported other outputs of sponsored research for general distribution.
