This Chronology summarizes the main provisions of Federal legislation relating to housing and community development, particularly that relating to programs administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Farmers Home Administration of the Department of Agriculture. It covers the period 1892 through 1992, in chronological order. It incorporates, in revised form, and continues the now out-of-print Committee document, Evolution of Role of the Federal Government in Housing and Community Development, issued October, 1975. In addition to the legislation, it includes summaries of Executive documents related in significant ways to the, development of such legislation and to the organization of the administering agencies. It also includes legislation affecting housing-related matters in the jurisdiction of the Home Loan Bank Board and its successor agencies, but not banking legislation per se.

This report is part of the collection of scanned historical documents available to the public.
