Assisted housing and reagan's New Federalism

The colorado experience

Abstract

This article considers assisted housing policies during the Reagan administration relative to four dimensions of what Deil S. Wright has called a "restoration" strategy: decongestion, devolution, decrementalism, and deregulation. General evidence suggests that decrementalism has been the major thrust in assisted housing policy, and evidence from Colorado seems to underscore that general evidence. Questionnaire and interview data from Colorado housing authority directors do not indicate perceptions of increased decongestion, devolution, and deregulation during the Reagan years. Decrementalism, the only dimension that housing authority directors perceive to have come about, is not perceived to have lessened regulation or to have brought about greater local decisionmaking responsibility.
