Prior to the moratorium on federal housing programs for low and moderate income households (1972), a rash of housing models were formulated by various regional metropolitan planning bodies across the country attempting "equitable" distribution of subsidized units. This type of model has generally come to be referred to as a "fair share" formula. Each version, in its own way, had set about the establishment of an objective set of criteria for locating future projects.1
