The Federal Farm Housing Program


Abstract:
Sample surveys in 1947 showed quite clearly that the nation's \"ill housed\" citizens were not confined to the slums of cities; farmers, especially in areas such as Eastern North Carolina, lived in conditions of overcrowding, with no electricity or running water. Under the Housing Act of 1949, loans and grants are available to North Carolina farmers from the Farmers Home Administration.
