National Housing Agency

National Housing Agency
   The NHA was established in 1942 to bring together the various federal housing bodies, principally the Federal Housing Authority, Federal Housing Administration (FHA), and Federal Home Loan Bank Administration. It was also intended to provide housing for defense workers during World War II. The agency spent $2.3 billion for this purpose and built 2 million units, albeit many of them of a temporary nature. In 1949, the NHA was abolished and its functions were assumed by the National Housing and Home Finance Agency.
