GARD NER, Chairman The Urban Coalition Action Council before the Subcommitte e on Employment, Manp ower and Poverty Committee on Labo r and Public Wel f are United States Se nate April 23, 1969 Mr. Chai rman, we are pleas e d to b e h ere on behalf of the Urba n Coa lition Ac t ion Council. The Ac t ion Council brings to g ether v a rious l e ad e rs f r o m s e gments t hat do no t n orma lly coll a bo r ate for the purpose o f r eaching a gree me n t or s ol ut i ons t o ou r n ation ' s dome stic pro b l e ms.

It s houl d g ive u s cou rag e and co n f i d e nc e t o tac k l e the rema i ni n g t a s k. To le t the a c hi e vem e n t l e ad t o a s l a cke n ing o f effo r t would b e t h e worst ki nd o f fo lly . Twe n ty- t wo millio n p o or peop l e repr ese nt a t reme ndous amount o f human misery a nd depriv ati o n. �i -2In his excellent paper entitled "Who are the Urban Poor?" Anthony Downs offers some highly relevant data. Of the urban p oor, the majority are white almost half are in households that cannot be expected to be self-supporting: the aged, the disabled, the mother with infant children forty-one per cent are children under 18 nearly one-third a re in househ olds h e aded by employed men whos e earni ngs are below the poverty leve l. It is worth r eminding ourselves that the poverty remaining after dec ade s of unp recede nted a fflu ence is riot like the poverty th a t wa s once widespread in thi s count ry . that rema ins. It is the h ard-core It is not the g e ntee l, thre a dbare but benign poverty of the 19th Century clergyman or t each er. It is poverty at its mo s t stub bor n, pov erty rooted in th e s oci a l d i sintegration of urban a nd rura l s lums , poverty linked to s evere cultu ra l deprivation, poverty complicated by illite racy , phy ~ica l handicap, advanc e d age , or me nta l r e t a r dation. In s uch p overty , hung er a nd ma lnutri t i on warp t h e no r ma l course of c hi ld develo pme nt; p hysica l ai l me nt s go untreat ed and turn into li fe long h a ndic ap s; child re n are n ever exposed t o the s timu l a tion t hat would e n s u re t heir in te ll ec t ual deve l opme nt; the enviro nment breed s h opelessness a n d l aw l essness. It is a wor l d of v i c tims and it breeds v i c t ims. An individual born into s u c h an environment does not--cannot-enjoy th e opportunity we regard as t h e birthr i ght of every American child. I f o u r commitment to the values we so proudly �-3~ profess doesn't move us to right that wrong, our self-interest should. Out of all proportion to their numbe r s in the population, the children of poverty become, in later life, economic burdens on the rest of the community. If we are unwilling to spend the money to cure the problem at its source, we spend the money later anyway--in the social cost of crime, narcotics addiction, social unrest, mental illness, lifelong phy sical handicap and so on. The attack on poverty must be far broader and more varied than is generally recognized. We have to begin with management of the e conomy and with attention to economic growth and full emplo yme nt. Back of every thing we seek to accomp l ish is the economic strength of the n a tion. That strength mak es our social programs p ossible . It provides the jobs and pay ch ecks that enable most Americans to e a t well, keep their childr en healthy and funct i on as ind ependent citizens living thei r lives as they please. We often fa ll into the h abit of t alking about ou r economy as one thing and our socia l p r ograms as a completely d i fferent subj e ct. They are th e same subject. main social program. Economic growth is our The freest and best money a ma n receives is the mone y in his pay envelope. The bes t program for creating i ndependent and confident citi ze ns is a vital, full-employment economy. Therefo r~ we must expec t the Administration and the Congr ess to use the tools of monetary and fisca l policy to avoid inflation or recession, to facilitate capital growth �-4where possibl e , to e xp and job o pportunities and job t r ai n ing, to seek wag e -price stability , to encour a ge the development o f new products and s~rvices and the adv ancement of science and technolog y , to foster increased prod ucti vi t y , and to protect natural resources. ,. The a ttack o n pov erty also calls for adequate progr a ms of income mainte n a nce - -unemp loyme nt insur a n ce, social secu r i ty , public assistance, and probabl y new forms t o come. These prog r ams hav e no t be e n surrounde d with t h e glamou r that has touched some othe r aspects of t he attac k o n p over t y ; ind e e d t h e publ i c assis t ance pr o gram s h av e be e n the su b j e ct of widespr e ad ho st i lity. But it is a p l ai n fa ct th a t mos t o f t he p oo r a re too ol d or t o o young or t oo si c k o r disab l ed t o enter t h e j ob marke t . No ma t ter how bri l liant l y we pursue reme di a l prog rams , t h ere wil l a l way s remain a large numb er wh o can only be aid ed by providing c ash i ncome. A comprehen s ive attack on poverty a lso requir e s that we rehabili ta te the victims of poverty and e liminate the urban and rural slums where poverty is bred. To h e l p t he indi v i dua l we mus t h ave adequate l y funded programs of educat ion, job training, he al t h care and social services. To ch ange the environment involves massive urban efforts f suc h as the programs called for in the Housing Act of 1 968 ; as well as region a l and rural development activities such as the Appalachian Program. In short, the total effort to deal with poverty reaches into every domestic department of government. As you know, the Office of Economic Opportunity has controlled something less than �I . -58% of all federal antipoverty funds expended during its life. Agencies with far more resources at their disposal are concerned with. housing, manpower, health and other needs of the poor. If we do not adequately fund those broader programs, the attack on poverty will be crippled. 1 would place particular emphasis on modernization of the e x isting welfare prog r am, including Fed e ral support of national welfare standard s , and hopefull y , early consideration of a more thoroug hgoing revision of the national income maintenance s y stem a stepp e d -up training p r o g ram with built-in incentives, bett e r t ai lor ed to the n eeds of the s e ver a l c a t ego rie s of poo r , e.g ., t he we l fare mothe rs, the uns ki l led t eenager, t he employed l ow earning family he ad Jo b creat i on--an exp a nded JOBS program t o i n c re a se p r i vate emp lo yme nt, a nd a publ ic serv i ce emp loyment p rog ram educa tion , h e alth a nd nutritio na l progr am s to c ounter the e f fec ts of pov e r ty on th e con s i dera bl e number o f ch i ldr e n g r o wi ng u p in poo r f amili e s.

And yet, they se l dom are given the necessar y funds or �-6the long-range commitment to insure their success. Some examples wi ll show the glaring disparities between authorizations and appropriations. The Model Cities program-- intended as a coordinated attack on blight and treating social as well as physical problems--was given $625 million last year although more than $1 billion was authorized. This year only $675 million has b ee n requested, with an authorized amount of $1.3 billion. The home o wne r ship and rental assistance provisions of the Housing and Urb a n Development Act called f or $150 million the first year , and onl y $50 mi llion was appropriated. These funds have been fully committ e d f o r several months, and many are beginning to quest io n serious l y t he gove r nment I s c o1mn i tme nt under the Ho u s in g Act . The Nix on Adm in istratio n is re questin g full fu nding for th e se prog ram s a nd Congress must act o n this reque st i f the Ho u s ing Act i s to meet i ts p r omise. Th e Off i c e of Economic Oppo rt u ni t y has consistently failed t o sec ur e full appr o pr i at io ns. And in educ a tion and he a l th, the re h as bee n a no t ice a ble f a ilure to spend the amoun t s n e c e s sary to have a n imp act o n pove rty.

And so the story goes . It i s u nreal i stic to believe we c an s ol ve ou r nation ' s problems i f we do not prov i de even the auth orized funds after long and studied debate over proposed solutions. �- 7 - And now let me tu r n specifically to e x tension of the Economic Opp o r tun ity Act a nd the Offi ce o f Economic Opportunity. Mr. Chairman, in preparation for this testimony , I revi ewed the history of the Office of Economic Opp or tunity since 196 4 , a nd I must s a y that I am impre ss e d with the role that t h is Committe e ha s pl a y e d. and in s i g ht. The Committee has shown concern It h a s worked h a rd to educa te itsel f a nd to se rv~ as a n advo cate f or t h e poor. It is e a s y to critici ze the hectic e a rly years of the OEO. But wh en the smo ke cl ears away; I b el i eve th a t history wil l r eco r d si gnif i cant achievement s . The OEO ' s vigor o us efforts stirr ed a concern for the victims of poverty tha t made p o ssible a mobilizat i on of resources r eaching far beyond t he agen c y its e lf. Programs in beha l f o f the poor in every othe r dome s tic d e p artme nt be n ef itte d by the g enera tive f o rce of t his new e ff ort. Beyond that, the OEO has inj ec ted a n ele ment o f innovation into a numbe r of programs addressed t o the problems o f th e poor; it has ide nti fied and f o stered community l eadership a mong the poor and among minorities; a nd it h as enabled m~ny of us to ga in valuable insight s into the imp a ct o f insti tutional inade quacies on the li ves o f the poor. Looki ng to the f uture , I want to speak very briefly of thr ee themes which were p romine nt in the ear l y concepti on o f OEO' s function: innova tion, community parti cipation and coordination. The i nnov at ive approach must continue to characterize the OEO. The infusion of " research and development" t e chniques �- 8 - into social program areas should be firmly supported and expanded. The innovative approach is well illustrated in the delive r y of services to the poor . Breaking out of the mold of traditional agency patterns, the b es t poverty programs h ave shown that legal and heal th services, pre-school education, multi- service progr am integration in n e ighborhood centers and other te chni ques could in fa ct reach p ers ons long con s i dered unre achab le. It is not gene rally reco gn i zed th a t t he innova ti ve activi ties o f OEO had a far- r each i ng imp a ct on the old- l ine departme nts. The latter would b e loath to admi t it , but many p r ograms undertake n by the old -l ine departme nts betwee n 1 965 and 1 96 8 we r e inf l uenced by t he philosophy of the OEO. At th e h eart of th e controversy surrounding the OEO has b een th e ques tio n of public power for the poor. The "War o n Poverty " provi ded t h e first ma jor t ools wi th which the poor could seri ously affec t some po lic ies and programs at both the national and th e local l evels. It is t r u e that in a typic a lly Ame ric a n burst o f e nthusiasm, the OEO wen t at this task with a maximum of energy and a minimum o f reflect i on. But perhaps su c h things c an only be a ccomplished in a burst of enthusiasm. I a m thoroughly fami li ar with the problems, inconsistencies, ten s ions and mi stakes that h a ve arisen fro m appl icati on of the requirement for "max imum feasible participation." But we are more skillful in handling thos e prcblems today than we were two y ears ago, and we are still learning. ,, It was wise to seek �- 9 - to give a voice to the poor, particularly wi se in the case of minority groups (because of their systematic prior exclusion). I believe that we will move towa rd incr easing l y sound and effective f o rms of citizen pa rt icipation . Eve n today, as my own staff mo~es about the country helping to organize local urb a n co a litions and se e king the cooperat ion of le aders from the bla ck community, we find that many of th e ablest local lead e r s we can r e cruit for our purposes ar e me n and wome n who had t hei r first tast e of leadership in th e Community Action Programs . I h ave emphas i z e d th at the attack on poverty , broad l y con ceived, r eaches into every dome s tic d e partme nt. Such multif a rious a cti v ity cr i e s out for coord inat ion, and of cour s e the OEO was p l a ced in th e Ex ecut ive Offic e of the Preside nt to ac c ompl i sh jus t t h at. As we all know, it n eve r di d , p a rtl y b e c a u s e it s energ i e s went in to op er a ting new prog r a ms, and p art l y b ecaus e coord in at ing Ca bine t me mb e rs is a difficult t ask a t b es t . OEO' s achievemen t s in coord i na t i o n hav e not b ee n alto ge th er neg l ig i b l e. I t h as wo r k ed out che c kpo i nt pro ced ur e s th r ou g h which federal agencies , grantees, st ate agenc i es and lo ca l c ommunities engage in mutua l consu l tati o n before grants are made. And i t has developed joi n t projects such a s th ose i nvolv i ng displaced farm workers i n th e Mississipp i De l ta, I ndians, and migrant workers. But much, much more is needed. I believe that my views on the coordination of domestic programs are fairly well known. �- 10 \ I do not accept the widely sh a r e d notion that Cabinet membe rs cannot be coordinated. The y can b e . The first requireme nt is unflinching de termination on the part of the Preside nt to bring abo ut that r es ult. The second is a suitable instrume ntality (and I may say p are ntheti ca ll y th a t the Economic Opportunity Council, properly u sed , wou ld h ave bee n quite a dequat e to the · purpo se ). The t hird requir eme nt is that th e instrumen tali ty must b e h eaded by a ma n o f stature, implicitly t~ust ed by the Pres ident . There i s a serious quest i on as to wheth er OEO can ever fill t his coordi nat ing function so long as i t is an o p er a t ing ag ency -- and th eref ore, in a se ns e, a compe titor o f th e departme nts it hopes to coo rdinate. So we may h ave to look to Preside nt Nixon ' s n ew Urba n Affairs Council to accomplish the d e sired result. It will do so onl y if the President hims e l f takes an active inter es t in it , and o n l y i f a s trong and subst ant i al professional staff is prov ided to pl a n, ev a luate, sift p r i or iti e s , develop a lterna tive cour ses of action and make recommenda t i ons to the President. Whil e we 're on t his s u b j ec t I wan t to say a word abo ut rural poverty, because it involves the question of coordination. We wi ll not solve our most pressing urban prob l ems as long as widespread rural poverty exists . The h eavy migration from rural America to the blighted areas of our major cities clearly shows how b ad economic and social conditions are in rura l areas; de spite the privations felt by the urban poor, dehuman izing urban conditions continue to represent a substantial improvement �- 11 - over life for the poor in rural communities. With improving agricultur a l technology, ever more per~ons will have to find employ ment outside agricultur e . Already the great majorit y of the rural poor are not in any way involved in farming. Industri a l de v elopme nt in rural ar e as should be vastly e xpande d wh e r eve r suffici e nt potential e x ists . State s a r e unique l y situated to combat rural poverty . Programs of eco n omic a nd co~munity d e vel opme nt in rural ar ea s frequently require multi - coun ty planning a nd coordination. Federal funds, includin g CAP fun d s, shoul d encour a g e the deve lopme nt of s ta te -coo r d ina t ed d e mon st r ati ons in rur a l ar eas -- p e r haps s evera l in each s t at e -- with s pe cial emp hasi s on economi c deve l opment and o n tr a i n ing o f admi ni s t rat i ve and pro gram personne l for a ll ph a s e s o f community d evelopment , fro m pub l ic admini s tr a tion t o staff for socia l we l fare agencies. Such d emonstrations should extend to educ a tion, h ealth, i ndustrial d eve lopment, tra n sportation and al l o th er re l evant fie l ds . Obviousl y , programs o f th a t scope are not t h e a ppr opr i a t e primar y function of the De p ar tment of Agri cultur e a lo ne ; rath er , th ere shoul d be a coordinated attack b y the Dep artmen t s o f Agricult ure, Labor, Hous i ng and Urban Development, Transportation, Health, Education a nd We lfare, and the Economi c Development Administratio n. The OEO mig h t conceivably be t he in strumen t for accomplishin g such coordination a lthough -- as indica ted earlier -- its capacity to oper ate and coordinate at the same time remains in doubt. �-12- In the fin a l analys i s , subst a ntial economic d evelopment is the key to e nding rur a l poverty . There is at p res e nt no fed e ral policy g uiding the app licati o n o f the nation's con s ide r a ble potenti a l in this are a . Re sources of the Ec onom{c Deve lopme nt Admi nistr a tion c an be broug ht to b ear only where the most s e v e r e cond iti ons alre ady e x ist, a nd even then there is virtually n o coord i nat i on be t wee n the Ec onomic Deve l opment Ad mi nis t r a t i o n and ma jor fede r a l age ncy p r ocur e me n t a n d cont racting f u nct i ons . There h a s been much d i scu ss i o n o f wh e ther t he v ariou s OEO p r ograms s hou ld be move d to the regular departme nts . I be lieve that some definitely shoul d be t ransferred under c arefully d rawn cond iti ons. I con fess t ha t I am equal l y i mpat i ent with thos e who are tot a lly ho s til e to the OEO and tho se who want to preserve it u nder g l ass, utterly uncha nged . I need not remind th i s Committee that about 40 % of the funds appropriated u nder th e Economi c Oppor tunity Act have a l ways gone i nto programs delegated among variou s federa l age n cies. The great bulk of these funds h as gone into a series of wo rk and training programs, a n d th ey have been the basis for much innovation wi th in the receiving agencies . I am keenly conscious of the problems involved in transfer. Fo r example , federal departments presently function heavily through state agencies; they do not, in the main, have stron g relationships to local l eadersh ip and organization. If the departme nts receive programs from OEO they must continue to foster the new constituencies developed around the programs �- 13 - at the local level, and Congress must encourage them to do so. Similarly, they must protect th e innovative values of the transferred programs. If these programs cannot survive in the regular agencies as the latter are presently org anized, then th ere is something gravely wrong with the regular agencies, something that should be corrected forthwith. To insure an appropriate outcome, it seems advisable that, at least initi al l y , delegation should be favored over outright transfer. Transf er should occur only as the regular agencies prove their capacity to nurtur e the delegated programs. �- 14 - I have been asked my v i ews on how ma ny years the present legislation should be extended. I do not have fixed views on that sub j e ct, provided th at two princi ples are ob se rved . The first i s that eve ry program should be open to pe r iodic r evision as experience is ga ine d . The s e cond is that the nation s hould exhi bit an unwaveri ng commitment to fight the poverty battle continuously , thi s yea r a n d nex t and the year after , never relenting until t h e j ob is d one . It is not an of f- aga in - on - again kind of prob l e m and it do e sn 't me rit tha t kind of answer. In c losing , gen tl emen , let me reve r t again to the tota li ty of the gover nme nt's effort in combatting p overty. I am firmly convinced t h at mo re billions mu st b e p o ure d i mmed i ate ly into th e broad s pectrum of hou s in g , edu ca tion , h ea lth, ma n p owe r d eve l opment , a nd othe r federa l pro grams which make up the broader anti-poverty package. Millions are st il l hu ngry, or live in i nadequate ho us i ng ; the ma j ority of p oo r head s o f households work ful l time ; hea l t h services are still i naccessib l e to millions ; school systems and entire ci t ies across the country are facing bankruptcy whi l e provi ding minima l services to needy citizens. We can and must dea l with those p roblems at once. �

  • Text: ~-·-* THE URBAN COALITION ACTION COUNCIL JOHN W. GARDNER CHAIRMAN 1619 H STREET. N. W. WASHINGTON, D. C. 20006 Community Self-Determination Act of 1968 Senate Democratic Version s. 3875 Senate Republican Version s. 3876 House Democratic Version H. R. 18976 House Republican Version H. R. 18460 Title I (All Title references are to S. 3875) Title I creates a National Community Corporation Certification Board (NCCCB) and outlines the procedure and purpose of individual Community Development Corporations (CDC's). The NCCCB acts much like the National Labor Relations Board in its union certification procedure. It will be composed of five members, and its primary functions will be the issuance of corporation charters, conducting and supervising referenda, service as counsel to the CDC's and as an information center for parties interested in forming CDC's. A National Advisory Commission advises the NCCCB but does not have direct impact on the latter's specific activities. Section B of Titl~ I states the structural outline of a local CDC. This is the heart of the Act. It would have a broad social improvement purpose as well as the promotion of business activity. CDC's operate in areas in which the 16-year and up population ranges from 5,000 to 300,000. The geographic area within which a CDC would operate is designated by the applicants for a CDC charter . Any resident within the designated area may be a shareholder of the corporation, but the Act requires that a minimum of 10 per cent of the 16-year-old and up population residing within the area hold stock in the CDC. The shares would have a par value of $5, and each shareholder would have one vote in corporate matters, notwithstanding the number of shares the shareholder a ctually holds. The functions of a CDC fall into si x categories. First , neighbo r hood services and community improvement , including but not limited to public welfare programs , day ca r e centers , T E LE PH ON E : 20 2 29 3 -153 0 �-2consumer education, job placement, legal aid, etc. Second, it would own stock in businesses in the CDC area. Third, it would sponsor, own, or manage housing facilities within the CDC area. Fourth, it would be an advocate planner for neighborhood and community renewal projects. Fifth, it would serve as a representative of various community interests in other areas of public policy and concern. Six th, it would encourage various other elements of the community such as business, labor, religion, and so forth, to become active in voluntary community self-help efforts. A CDC would be financed by earnings from affiliated businesses, grants from community development funds, foundations, trusts, etc., and from contracts with privately owned businesses, government agencies, and other entities for specified services or products. The CDC would have nine directors and two additional directors for each 10,000 shareholders of the corporation in e x cess of 25,000. The directors of the corporation would select the executive officers as well as the Business Management Board. The latter's p r imar y f unction i s to p r ovide ove rall manage me nt exp e rtis e and a s sistance t o thos e af filiated businesses owned . by the CDC. The full area of responsibility of the members of the BMB would be spelled out in the CDC charter but would be phrased primarily to afford the BMB max imum latitude to manage CDC owne d busine ss e s and allow fo r the purchase o f othe r e nterp ris e s. CDC' s can be orga ni zed b y a ny fi v e o r more re side nts o f a speci f ic area covering a population range from 5,000 to 300,000, 16 years and older. For any designated area to be eligible for a CDC, howe v e r, the r a t e o f unemploy me nt must be h igher than the n a tional ave r age or t h e med i a n family in c ome b e propor t i ona t e l y lowe r th a n the national a v e r age . Af t e r a ppl ication is made f o r a CDC c h arte r , a 6 0 -day period mu st e l apse so as to allow any other interes t e d group within the same area, or an o ve rl a pping are a, the opp ortunity to o rganize its own CDC . Before the NCCCB will grant a f inal c h a rter to a g r oup of a ppl icants , the a pp l i c a n ts mu st h ave received ple d ge car ds f o r the p u rchase of stock from a min i mum of 5 per ce n t of t ho se eligible to purchase stock within the designated area of operation. This insures a minimum l eve l of community support. If the applicants cannot obta in pledge cards from the minimum 5 p er cen t, the char t er appl i cati o n i s rejec t e d . Once the p l edge cards are received from 5 per cent of the population, a conditional charter i s i ssue d. At that p o int, the CDC has 45 days in which to obtain additional pledge cards covering 10 per cent of the area's population. F ive hundre d peop l e must have paid in at l east $5,0 00 f o r CDC stock. During t h e �-3- 45-day period the pledge money is kept in escrow pending further action toward issuance of a final charter. During the period in which a CDC attempts to raise the minimum level of funds, an additional determination is being made which indicates the relative economic need of the area in question. A Development Index is figured for the area. The Index is the lesser of two ratios: First, the ratio of the national rate of unemployment to the area's unemployment rate x 100, or second, the ratio of the nation's median family income to the area's median family income x 100. If the Development Index of a conditional chartered CDC is found to be 90 or above, the charter is dissolved because the CDC is considered too close to the national average of 100. A special bonus is afforded those rural areas from which outmigration is contributing directly to specific urban tensions. If only one conditional CDC is left within a given area, a vote is then held in which a majority of those voting must approve the applicants. If a majority of those voting do approve, the final charter is granted; if a majority disapprove, the charter is dissolved. In the case of competing CDC's within a given area, referenda are held for each competitor, starting with those representing the geographic area encompassing the highest level of population. If none of the competitors within the largest given area are accepted, a vote is held for those CDC's competing in the next smallest geographic area, etc., until such time as one CDC is approved by the requisite majority of those voting. At least 10 per cent of the eligible voters must actually cast a ballot for any referendum to be valid. Once a CDC is established, a one-time seed money grant is made to the corporation in an amount equal to its current paid-in capital. Title II Title II provides for the establishment of Community Development Banks (CDB's), which are organized by CDC's . CDB's operate in an area of 25,000 or more people, 16 years and up, and concentrate on financial services to the area in quest ion . They provide both business financing and consumer credit to indi vidual CDC shareholders. Equity capital is obtained through the sale of stock to 1) the Secre tary of the Treasury (Class A), 2) any groups or individuals other than the Federal Government and CDC's (Class B), and 3) stock sold only to CDC's (Class C). �-4- Class A stock would be nonvoting and repaid by a franchise tax on the CDB's net earnings. Class B stock would be nonvoting but receive dividends. Class C stock would not receive dividends. The latter point is made so that the CDB becomes a necessary financial mechanism for the establishment and proliferation of CDC activities but does not become a source of income. Income bonds would be issued to the public to provide additional equity and debt capitalization. CDB net earnings would be first applied to make up any bad debts and restore any impaired capital. The payment of stoc~ dividends is a lessor priority. Loans are made to the following individuals and businesses: 1) CDC shareholders for normal consumer credit; 2) a small business, 75 per cent of which is owned by resident CDC shareholders; 3) a small business, less than 75 per cent of which is owned by CDC shareholders, so long as the CDC in whose area the business is located is given the right of first refusal when the business is sold; 4) a subsidiary of a CDC, 51 per cent of which is owned by CDC shareholders; 5) outside corporations with turnkey contracts with a CDC; 6) cooperatives, 75 per cent of whose members are CDC shareholders; and 7) nonprofit housing sponsors operating within the community serviced by the CDB. An applicant for a business loan must have a minimum level of business experience and exper tise, or have contracted with a company or service to obtain the necessary business training. Loans of up to 90 per cent of the required capital may be made on terms of up to 20 years for repayment . Housing sponsors can receive money for "front-money" or construction loans. Unorthodox and high risk ventures are encouraged as long as they would yield significant community benefits. Participation loans are encouraged. �7 -5The primary purpose of a CDB is to channel capital to business ventures. Its secondary purpose is to provide normal banking services to people in impoverished areas. Title III Title III creates a United States Community Development Bank, which would serve as a secondary financial institution and as a source of technical, financial, and managerial expertise to CDB's. It would serve also to promote economic development in those poverty-stricken areas where no CDB's exist. The USCDB would have the same relationship to CDB's as a federal intermediate credit bank has to local commercial banks. The USCDB would have the same relationship to those areas not serviced by CDB's as the World Bank has to underdeveloped countries. Although not an instrumentaility of the Federal Government, the President would initially appoint the incorporators and first directors of the USCDB. Eventually CDB's holding stock in the USCDB would name some of the directors. Capitalization would be provided through stock sales. The Secretary of the Treasury would hold nonvoting, nonpaying, Class A stock purchased through funds provided by a Congressional appropriation. Class B stock would be held by anyone other than the Federal Government, CDB's being eligible to purchase such stock. The USCDB is authorized to issue bonds, debentures, and other certificates of debt up to 5 times its paid-in capital and surplus. Its primary functions are to provide secondary banking services to CDB's through discounts, loans, notes, advances, and so forth, and to make loans for business and community facilities or public development facilities in low-income "investment areas," designated by the Secretary of Labor. It provides interim construction financing for facilities which it may also plan, initiate, own, and manage until such time as the facilities are purchased. It provides management assistance to CDB's as well as other borrowers and generally creates new investment opportunities by bringing together facilities, capital, and management. A CDB may establish branches. USCDB earnings are to be applied in the following order : 1) restoration of any capital impairment , 2) creation and maintenance of a surp lus account, 3) payment of a franchise tax with re f e r e n ce to the amount of Class A s t ock h e l d b y t he Secretary of the Treasury , 4) establishment of contingency rese rves , �-65) dividends on Class B stock up to 6 per cent of earnings, and 6) retirement of Class A stock held b y the Treasury. Title IV Title IV authorizes certain Federal tax advantages for CDC and turnkey corporations. All tax advantages granted to CDC's are applicable until the Development Inde x for the designated CDC area reaches the national average for fi v e years. Title IV would amend the Internal Revenue Code to permit each corporation in a group of CDC subsidiary corporations to retain its individual surtax exemption and pay its regular corporate tax on any thing over the $25,000 at a 22 p er cent rate rather than 28 per cent. Tax rates and surtax exemptions are liberalized depending upon the area's Development Inde x , with provis i ons for greater tax advantages to those CDC's operating in areas with the lowest Development Inde x . In addition, the Internal Revenue Code is amended to attr act turnkey companies into the CDC area. Turnke y comp a nies can tak e advantage of rapid amortization schedules for its facilities . Again, the rate of amortization depends on the rate of the Development Index with the shorter periods of amortization being made available to those companies which inv est in the poorest areas. A 10 per cent tax credit on wages and salarie s o f CDC shareholders e mploy ed in the turnk ey facili~y is granted to the turnke y company . This is called a human investment tax credit . The 10 p e r cent figure comp ares with the 7 per cent investment credit on machinery investment, though is higher b e cause of the impermanence of the inve stment in human skills . It is a r gue d that the credit must be highe r to induce the tu r n k e y corporation to i nvolve its e lf in impover ished are a s . The turnkey comp any is not r e quire d to pay c apital gains tax on th e s a le of a turnkey fa c ility if t h e sale p rofits are rei n v e ste d in another turnkey o pe r a tion or in Class B stock o f a COB . A tu rnkey co r porati o n would b e e ntitled to a sustai ned profita bility t a x credit eq u a l to 15 pe r c ent o f the profit s g enerated fr om t u rnkey o pera t i o n s fo r f i v e ye ars af te r t he sa l e of a faci l ity to a CDC . Th is latte r p r o vi sion p r e sumably gu a r antee s th e de v e lopme nt of the stronge st fi n an cia l operat i on th e t ur nk e y c omp a ny can en c o u rage . Title V If a CDC is no t a d i v idend-p a ying c o rp o ration , it can be treated as a CAP agency under t he Ec o nomic Opportunity Act . The Sma ll Busines s Admi n istration is a uthorized to make grants to CDC ' s o f up to 9 0 per cent of th e cost of technical and management assis t ance and training programs . The grants may be made for a number of programs , some o f which are as follo ws : �-7- 1) the identification and development of new business opportunities, joint ventures, and turnkey agreements; 2) marketing surveys; 3) planning and research for business development; 4) plant design, layout, and operation; 5) marketing and promotional assistance; 6) business counseling, management training, and legal and other related services with specific emphasis on management training, ·using the resources of private business; 7) encouragement of subcontracting to CDC's for establishing business and cooperative efforts to train and upgrade CDC personnel. �A P P E N D I X S. 3875 Sponsors: Senators Nelson (Wis.), Bayh (Ind.), Harris (Okla.), Hartke (Ind.), Church (Idaho), Mondale (Minn.), Hart (Mich.), Magnuson (Wash.), Metcalf (Mont.), Moss (Utah), Pell (R.

  • Text: APPENDIX B .November 7, 1968 MEMORANDUM TO Steering Committee FROM Local Coalition Task Force SUBJECT: Report on the Organization and Establishment of Local Urban Coalitions In the national statement of goals, principles and commitments adopted by the Emergency Convocation, the Steering Committee called for the establishment of local urban coalitions throughout the country. The Task Force on Local Coalitions has been assigned the responsibility of overseeing developments and progress of these local coalitions. At its meeting on October 17, the Task Force heard reports from the Local Coalition Division staff on its activities. While most of the staff has been on board little more than three months, visits have been made to all of the cities where coalitions were reported to have been in some state of organization or existence. In addition, the staff has been to 72 cities where .interest has been expressed by one element or another in establishing a coalition. The staff reported the status of coali- tions as follows: a. Applying the tough new standards established by the Task Force, one-third of the original coalitions (11 of 34) failed to meet the minimum criteria . . b. The remaining 23 coalitions are proceeding with staff ' �Report on the Organization and Establishment of Local Urban Coalitions 2 • assistance to organize task forc~s, develop programs and engage in fund-raising. c. Sixteen strong new coalitions, meeting Task Force standards, have been established giving us a total of 39. d. Thirty-two additional priority cities have been identified and are the focus of staff organizing efforts. The staff is moving forward steadily establishing new coalitions and strengthening those we already have. However , the staff is encountering sign~ficant impediments to their organization efforts. 1. There has been a clear and noticeable shift in national pubiic opinion. The sense of urgency concerning the urban crisis which existed in 1967 and early 1968 has diminished. There is greater reluctance to engage public and private resources at the local level in a coalition movement, particularly at this time . A quie t summe r has contributed to thi s shift of ipinion, but so too has the political c a mpaign. 2. There is occasi onal lack of support from the top leadership ,n ecessary to form a coalition. Wh ile busi nes s , labo r and ma yor s in many communities are providing leadership and support, the staff has b een encountering reluctance by key individuals o f one or more o f these e l e me nts to the establishment o f coalitions in some cities. �Report on the Organization and Establishment of Local Urban Coalitions 3 The establishment of quality coalitions takes on special importance since the national credibility of the Urban Coalition in part will be determined by thi role, image and status of the local urban coalitions. To be effective, local coalitions must have as their active members the most influential and highly regarded leaders of each of the various elements . .. Despite the best efforts of the staff, itjs not always poss1ble to engage the attention and support of these key individuals without the direct, personal involvement of Steering Committee members. Where· national Steering Commit tee members have become involved whether by a telephone call, letter, visit, or the convening of a meeting, the organizing effort has moved far more rapidly and has attracted key leaders. RECOMJvlENDATION: For these reasons we wish to recommend with the utmost urgency that the Steering Committee adopt a resolution calling on each member to accept increased responsibility for the organization ·,. of local coalitions and when called upon to do so to be of _ assistance in the following ways: a. Advise the staff of key leaders in priority cities who are known to Steering Committee members and who could be instrumental in the establishment of a coalition. b. At the request of the staff, write or telephone individuals urging their support of a ~oalition. �Report on the Organization and Establishment of Local Urban Coalitions c. 4 Accept speaking engagements in local communities on behalf of the organizing effort. d. Advise the staff on general strategies to be followed in particularly difficult situations. e. In public appearances and speaking engagements, identify with the Urban Coalition and urge support for the local coalition movement. In order to help meet immediate organizing needs of the coalition, Steering Committee members are requested to list on the attached list the name s of one or two key individuals in the cities who are known to Steering Committee· members and who could be instrumental in the establishment of a coalition. The staff will call on the se individuals to enlist their support and cooperation. Steering Committee members may leave the attached form following the meeting. Attachment �

C . 20006 WEEKLY LEGISLATIVE REPORT Education, - Labor ' and Antipoverty Funds. Congress has cleared the final appropriations f6r the HEW and Labor Departments and the Office of Economic Opportunity, the antipoverty agency. The antipoverty appropriation was the largest Congress has ever approved, but funds for schools attended by educationally deprived children were below last year's appropriation. The House narrowly defeated a Southern-backed provision that would have encoura g e d resistance to desegregation of schools. The Urb a n Coa lition Action Council joined other organizations and HEW in working for defe a t of the segregation provision. · Program Budget House Senate Final Below Budge t (in million s o f dollars) Title I Education $1,200. $1,073. $1,200. $1,123. $ -77.

Co:1gress also gave advance au t hority for appropriations in fisca l 1970 but limited the f unds to 90 % of the amo unt received this yeai. This was inte nde d to h e l p TELEPHON E: 202 293·153 0 �- 2 - schools plan their programs before the opening of schools next fall. The Teacher Corps appropriation was the largest Congress has allowed so far, and the funds for teaching bilingual children and for preventing school dropouts were the first made for these purposes. The antipoverty a ~p ropriation, which was not earmarked for any specific OEO programs, was $170 million more than Congress allowed last year. Funds for OEO have risen each year since the first appropriation in fiscal 1965. The Labor Department's manpower app ropriatipn was only $1.5 million above last year's fiscal 1968 figure but some manpower training programs, such as JOBS and Concentrated Employment, are financed from OEO appropriations. Funds Exempted from Budget Cut. HEW's education funds will be exempted from the o ver-all $6 billion spending reduction requi r e d under the tax surcharge-budget reduction law if Congress has its way. A section o f the vocational education bill (HR - 18366) that Congress sent to the President October 3 exempts education appropriations from the $6 billion reduction in s pending and th e $10 billion r eduction in obligations (.committed money ) vote d for all Government agencies in June. However , the Preside n t still retains authority to hold down spe nding on any education program no matter what amount Congress may have appropriated. Segregation Amendment. The key part of the Southern provision opposing d e s e grega tion of school s prohibited HEW from "forcing " childre n to attend any particular school ag a inst the choi c e of the i r pa rent s . The provis ion was sponsored by Mississippi Rep. J amie L. Whitten (D), a hi gh ranking member o f ' the Appropriations Cammi ttee. The Senate amended this provision by adding language th at prohibited forc e d atte ndance at a particular school "in o rde r to overcome racial imbal a nc e ."

He said the amendment "ra.ises the real threat of resegregation in many Southern school districts" and "implicitly sanctions racially dual school s ystems ." On a clos e , 167-175 vote Octobe r 3, the House rejected the Appropriations Committees ' recommendation and adop t ed the Senate language nullifying Whi tten's amendment. This wi ll enable HEW to continue to withhold funds from school d istricts that are not making re~l progress toward desegregation. New Housing Funds .

  • Text: THE URBAN COALITION ACTION COUNCIL JOHN W. GARDNER CHAIRMAN 1819 H STREET. N . W. WASHINGTON. D. C . 20006 September 27, 1968 WEEKLY LEGISLATIVE REPORT Housing. Final action on appropriations for the HUD Department was taken September 25 when the Senate agreed to the disappointingly low figures for key housing programs without dissent. (For figures, see September 20 Legislative Report.) HUD Under Secretary Robert C. Wood September 25 said decisions would be made within a week on whether to make across-the-board reductions or selective cuts in HUD programs. Congress cut the Department's requested funds by one-third -- from $3.1 billion to $2.1 billion. Wood, in an interview with editors of Housing and Urban Affairs Daily, singled out four programs where the Congressional cuts especially hurt. These were: Urban renewal grants. As these are for the next fiscal year, fiscal 1970, more funds may be sought next year. Model Cities, for which $625 million instead of $1 billion was approved. Urban inf ormation and technical assistance -- a small program to help states and cities carry out urban projects. Congress refused to grant any of the $5 million requested for the program. Fair housing enforcement, f or which all funds were denied on grounds HUD already had suffici e nt p e rsonne l working in the civil rights fi e ld. The $9 million the Senate had provided would have enabled HUD to hire about 690 investigators across the country to enforce the new fair housing req uirements written into law in Apri l . Several organizat ions h a ve p rotested the denial o f funds to e nfo r ce the · fa i r housing act and ther e is a poss i bility that HUD will ask Congress to reconsider its acti on.

Although that is the usual procedure late in the session, the economy mood in Congress may be so strong just before elections that the Administration will not ask for additional money. The major new programs in the 1968 housing law will be delayed at least six months if no supplemental appropriations are requested from or voted by Congress. HUD Personnel. Another factor that might delay the new housing programs is the Congressional directive in June that HUD, and all other federal agencies, cut back on their personnel. HUD had hoped to add 1,600 employees this year. Instead, it will have to reduce its staff by 900 -- not by firing employees but by filling only 7 out of 10 vacancies that develop as employees resign or retire. Senator John Sparkman (D Ala.), chairman of the Senate's Housing Subcommittee, tried unsuccessfully September 23 to win Senate approval of an e x emption for HUD from the personnel cutback. Unfortunately, exemptions f or other age nc i es were tacked onto Sparkman's amendment and the major sponsor of the personnel cutback,. Senator John Williams (R Del.), fought the amendment bitterly. It was defeated, 23-37. It is anticipated th a t anothe r attempt will be made to e x empt HUD f rom the seve r e personne l limitations before Congress adjourns. Education, Labor and Antipoverty Funds. Final appropriations f or e ducation, manpower training a nd antipoverty programs will be announc e d Sept e mbe r 30.

Philip Randolph August, 1968 We need your help: The Urban Coalition and local Urban Coalitions in 33 American cities join in asking your support for the campaign, "Crisis In Our Cities", prepared by the Advertising Council for Urban America. This fine example of advertising in the public service, coupled with related campaigns, represents the largest single effort yet attempted to use the power of mass advertising to meet the growing problems of cities and people which threaten to destroy our way of life. No domestic crisis has equaled the gravity of the one which now confronts us and never has there been a more important opportunity to turn the nation's communications resources to better purpose. I urge you to give to this campaign the full and continuing support of your organization. The stakes, .for all of us, have never been greater. Sincerely, John W. Gardner Chairman - �

Eastern Time. The program is brought to your community by broadcast lines. Cost of broadcast lines to your telephone company test board is borne by the producer. The loop and bridging costs from the telephone company to station are borne by the station. Charges: There are no program charges. Production costs are the responsibility of the producer. Station Cutaways: There will be three 70 second breaks--one each quarter hour-- during the one-hour broadcast: a 10 second station ID and 60 seconds for local commercials. Revenue from commercials is the station's. The choice and responsibility for such advertising rests with the station. Public Service Spots: Public ser vic e spo ts will be fed down the network line f or the stations which want a completely pack~ged program. 7 Second Delay: NIGHT CALL will be fe d live to the stations with no delay. There are two reasons why the show is not delayed nationally: a. The producer cannot assume this r e sponsibility legally for the station; therefore, no attempt to do s o is made. b. Acceptable air expressio n changes from market to market. What is acceptable in Chicago may be unacceptable in Sioux City. (Page 1 of two) Released in cooperation with the Broadcasting and .Film Commission , National Council of Churches, and the National Ca tholic Office for Radio and Television (NCO RT) Produced by TRAFCO I Television , Radio and Film Comm ission of The Uni ted Methodist Church, Harry C. Spencer, General Secretary , �Producer Precautions: The producer does have several precautions against abuse on the air: a. The calls are screened before being placed on the air. b. The host has override capability over both telephone lines. When the host speaks, the gain automatically lowers on the audience and guest lines. c. NIGHT CALL permits any point of view to be expressed. Ideas are attacked but persons are not. This basic respect for persons has effectively negated the bigot in the past. d. The audience caller can be taken off the air at the flip of the switch by the host. S t ation Identification on the Network: Partici pating stations are identified on the air when a listener calis in from that station's listening audience. Audience Callers: NIGHT CALL accepts calls collect from listeners anywhere in the country. This cost is the responsibility of the producer. Test S ignal: A program test signal with time checks will be sent down the line 15 minutes prior to starting time each night. Emergency Number : To contact the producer during or near show time, call: 212/ 749-5400. In case o f a line problem, call your local telephone company. Regular Phone Number: The producer may be reached during office hours at: 212/ 663-8900. (Page 2 of two) �
