Many countries in the world have programs that provide housing assistance to its residents. Most programs are focused on assistance with rental, although, programs that assist homeowners also exist. Typically, the target group for these programs is defined in terms of low-income, although other criteria such as age (the elderly), presence of disability, and family status (presence of young children in the household) have also been used as preference or eligibility criteria for these programs. Programs may exist at the national, provincial and other jurisdiction level (Kutty, 2004).

Consumer’s views cannot be the only determinant of new housing design. A direct match between stated consumer preferences and supply does not guarantee successful and viable housing. The home is not simply another consumer durable.
A house has a life that must be measured in decades rather than months or years; it is not a fashion consumable to be left at the local charity shop when tastes change, but the single major lifetime investment for most people and increasingly source of financial security. In the Philippines, R. A. 7292 otherwise known as the Urban Development and Housing Act of 1992 and R. A. 7160 or the Local Government Code stipulates the mandate of LGUs to provide the housing needs of their “homeless constituents,” thus “justifying” the need for them to implement their respective local housing programs.
