Agency Function
The functions of this office are currently performed by the Office of Housing and Community Development.

Agency History
In January 1968, Mayor James H. J. Tate, created the Office of the Deputy Managing Director for Housing to marshal and coordinate all resources needed to meet the housing needs of the City s low-income residents. The Office was designed to implement a comprehensive housing program. The scope of the office included the direct administration of the Relocation Service and the Neighborhood Renewal Program. The Housing Director worked with other City and non-City agencies to coordinate those aspects of their operations which bear on low-income housing construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance. In addition to program administration and coordination, the Office performed other activities, including long-range planning for low-income housing development; assistance to groups in low-income areas in their efforts to utilize the housing and neighborhood development programs; review of existing and proposed governmental housing programs; and collection of all information on publicly assisted production of low and low-moderate income housing.

The Deputy Managing Director for Housing replaced the Development Coordinator in the Mayor's Office, and was in turn replaced by the Office of Housing and Community Development during the Rizzo Administration.
