Many scholars of urban studies believe that the most important factor effective on the amount of individuals' welfare is housing.  Population increase of Iran and the expansion of the range of cities in Iran in recent decades cause centralization and increase in population densities in Iran and it seems that during recent years, economic policies of housing, as the interface ring for spatial planning policies of lands and urban and rural development, has been to some extent neglected by Iran's planning officials. Considering the multidimensionality of the issue of housing, for urban housing planning the intervention of different state and urban organizations is required and the lack of a comprehensive and integrated management is tangible in this issue. Regarding the domination of municipalities over internal issues of cities and also regarding geographical, political, economic and social conditions of different cities, municipalities can burden the responsibility of this issue. The objective of the present study is to investigate the problem of housing in Iran and providing an appropriate strategy for resolving this issue. Accordingly, the study, by doing library research, administering interviews and consulting state authorities and elites of housing markets and also by using the authors' scientific and executive experiences, an organizational structure was suggested for solving the housing issue. Then, by preparing questionnaires and surveying three groups (citizens, state and municipality authorities and academic specialists) this structure was evaluated using matrix QSPM and the SWOT model. Finally, by using the conducted surveys, the desired strategies were presented for improving the performance of organizational structure.
