Abstract: This article reviews the history of public housing projects in Chicago, from the early developments by wealthy social reformers up to and including the foreclosure, and demolition, of buildings renovated earlier by government funding. The problems of subsidized housing are examined as well as several alternatives currently being tested including the Experimental Housing Allowance Program.
