Better Housing Program Dealers’ Booklet
This historic publication is a dealers’ booklet, promoting participation in the FHA’s Better Housing program to architects, contractors, building supply companies, and other merchants involved in home supply. As the booklet advertises, the Better Housing program allowed homeowners to borrow $100 – 2,000 from local lenders or merchants for the purposes of home improvements. The loan, which could have a term as short as months or as long as five years, was insured by the FHA. The Better Housing program was authorized by Title I of the National Housing Act.
