Four factors appearing to be associated with attitudes of community residents toward OEO-financed housing facilities for migrant farm workers and their families are: (1) type of primary source of income in the community; (2) resident property ownership; (3) distance of the housing facility from crops being harvested; and (4) distance of the facility from centers of population. Early community involvement and planning contributed greatly to creating and sustaining successful relationships within the rural area.
