Documents program and research plans of the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment as of May 1975, when all important experimental details had been settled but findings were not yet available. As one element in the HUD-sponsored Experimental Housing Allowance Program, HASE was undertaken to help determine the merits and feasibility of a national direct-cash housing allowance program for low-income renters and homeowners. Conducted in two experimental sites, its purpose is to study housing market and community responses to such a full-scale program. The report explains how the experiment will address questions concerning supply responsiveness, behavior of market intermediaries, residential mobility and neighborhood change, and effects on nonparticipants, using data from administrative records of the allowance programs and marketwide surveys of residential properties. This report also provides a topical index of HASE publications from December 1971 through May 1980.
