Examines landlord awareness of attitudes toward, and expectations about HUD's experimental housing allowance program in St. Joseph County, Indiana, before enrollment (1975). Describes salient landlord characteristics and explores how those characteristics affected the diffusion of information about the program and the information attitudes toward it. Results indicate that landlords did not have strong a priori views about the program; that their strong preferences for certain types of tenants may affect their responses to the program; and that landlords with large rental holdings may view the program differently from those operating on a small scale.
