How Owners of Homes and Business Property Can Secure the Benefit of the National Housing Act
This historic publication is an advertisement for the FHA’s Better Housing program. Authorized by the 1935 National Housing Act, the program allowed home and business owners to apply for government-insured loans to undertake property improvement or repairs. Applicants could seek loans either from local financial institutions or directly from contractors and merchants. Home-associated loans ranged from $100 – 2,000 and typically lasted three years, though terms of up to 5 years were possible with approval.
