Transcript of Hoovervilles
Several attempts were made to eliminate those small villages during the 1930s
Government and city officials couldn't really do anything about the health issues and scattered mess that Hoovervilles created  Finally, in 1941, a shack elimination program was put into effect, and shantytowns were torn down . Employment levels had begun to rise, which gradually provided some shelter and security for formerly homeless Americans . They were compacted in tight courters. A long process was used to make a quilt for warmth. BLAMED! Works Cited
