The access to housing combined with good living conditions for low-income workers manifests itself as one of the main urban problems of contemporary times. However, access to such assets is hampered by the private ownership of urban land that excluded those who do not have sufficient cash income to access the housing commodity in the formal real estate market. Thus, a real possibility of access to such goods by such classes is included in the Minha Casa, Minha Vida (MCMV) program, which, in turn, directs public resources to private construction companies for the production of social housing. In this way, the main objective of this research is to understand how the State and private capital through the current public policy of social housing contribute to the segregation and fragmentation of low-income families, having as object of empirical analysis the Maria Amélia II located on the shores of the urban space in the city of Catalão (GO). The methodological procedures adopted in this research are based on theoretical research, with the objective of constructing a discussion about the production and reproduction of urban space in the capitalist city, discussing the issue of private ownership of urban land and housing produced through housing programs for low-income classes. Documentary research is also used to understand the production process of the residential area studied, as well as the guidelines that govern the band 1 of the Minha Casa, Minha Vida (MCMV) program. Finally, through the implementation of the field research through the application of the questionnaires with the beneficiary inhabitants, it was possible to understand some of the challenges of appropriating this new space created by the State and directed to the less favored workers. From the present research, it is possible to glimpse the reinforcement of the phenomenon of socio-spatial segregation in the urban scenario of the city of Catalão, since the MCMV program consolidates the suburb of the cities, such as low-income housing classes. Therefore, it is noted that the role that the program plays for these families goes beyond access to housing, also influencing, ideologically and in the sense of realization due to access to housing where the challenges of appropriation of space are sometimes overlapped by the fact of acquiring the 'own house'.
