The concept of Integrated Housing Scheme (IHS) has received considerable attention in India, Indonesia and an African country Kenya. The reason for this paradigm shift is due to neglect of rural infrastructure and housing in Nigeria and the impact the scheme made in countries where it was implemented. The Integrated Housing Scheme (IHS) had led to urban slum upgrading in India and Kenya. It also recorded notable success in the provision of common facilities in rural areas of India. In view of the neglect of rural areas by both private and public sectors, and the need to improve the housing condition of the rural dwellers, this paper focuses on the benefits of IHS to improving rural housing condition in Nigeria. A multi stage sampling was used to select 344 participants from 28 active communities out of the 36 communities’ coverage by Rural Development Programme (RUDEP) of Justice Development and Peace Makers’s Centre (JDPMC). Qualitative and quantitative data obtained from the respondents was analysed through descriptive statistics, frequency distribution, correlation and regression analysis. The findings revealed that the integrated scheme impacted rural housing condition positively. The paper suggested adoption of IHS as viable policy for improving condition of rural housing in Nigeria.
