The publication demonstrates that the cause of the inflated housing costs was attributable to an increase in prices for domestic fuels and utility services. HASE, an experimental program to test the market impacts of providing housing allowances to low-income households, was the second component of HUD’s Experimental Housing Allowance Program.
