Abstract: The conditions of providing and maintaining public housing have changed to the point that older and more conventional techniques no longer apply. The focus of this study is a Comprehensive Improvement and Assistance Program (CIAP) application planning process and the effort of a large public housing authority in St. Louis, Missouri, to renovate and maintain a dwindling supply of units.
