New perspective on state-level housing policy, how its role has grown in relation to the federal role.

With the ongoing recession and housing crisis, it has never been more important to understand the federal and state governments’ roles in affordable housing. The Creation of a Federal Partnership takes a fresh look at the history of national and state housing policy by examining the role played by state housing agencies since the 1970s. Establishing new ground in the field, this volume discusses how the relationship between the federal and state levels has evolved over time. The result, Margaret M. Brassil argues, is that the federal government’s broad policy guidelines allow states to better address their own social issues, an improvement for policy and ultimately for the people it serves.

“Brassil provides a timely, engaging account of societal issues relevant to the history and transformation of affordable housing policies … Scholars and practitioners alike will benefit from the author’s thoughtful reflections on best practices … Highly recommended.” — CHOICE

Margaret M. Brassil received her PhD in political science from Johns Hopkins University and has taught political science at the University of Maryland, College Park, and Loyola College in Baltimore.
