Spanish term or phrase:Programa de Mejoramiento de Vivienda en Lote Familiar
This is a title taken from a case study carried out by an NGO into the quality of life of single mothers living in the Mexican Federal District. The aim of the program is to provide housing to low-income single parent families and to improve poor housing conditions.
I came up with 'Family Housing Development Program' - but it doesn't feel quite right. I have carried out an exhaustive search on the Internet to see whether the term already exists in English - without much luck.
Hi Charlotte - many thanks for your suggestion, however, I have since found out that an official translation already exists: '(Mexican) Federal District's Integrated Territorial Social Development Programme - and goes under the acronym 'PROMEJORVI'.

family housing improvement programme
Explanation: I don't think that your version is wrong at all, I think that the family housing development programme is fine. This is just a suggestion along the same lines.
