National Housing Act, 1935

This newsreel-style video details the benefits of the National Housing Act for workers and the economy during the Great Depression. We are given a tour of a house built as a result of the program, which highlights the new innovations in construction. A couple interested in the home can now afford to buy as a result of the legislation.

This seems timely given the mortgage crisis we are facing.
