The President's Commission on Housing was established by Executive Order on June 16, 1981. The creation of the Commission was an expression of President Reagan's commitment to housing and of his desire to find remedies to the housing problems that affect millions of Americans.

The Commission's mandate was timely and important. The President called upon the Commission to recommend to him and to the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development options for the development of a national housing policy. Further, the President sought the Commission's advice on the role and objectives of the Federal government in the future of housing.
