�Preliminary Draft - LANDLORD-TENANT LAW REFORM
I
Archaic landlord-tenant law and practices, once appropriate to an
agricultural society, must be reformed and modernized to meet the
need of industrialized urban America.
Ancient legal doctrine, construing a lease as a conveyance of an
interest in land rather than an agreement, leads to the holding that
the obligation of the tenant to pay rent is independent of the duty
of the landlord to repair and maintain the premises. The sole remedies thus available to the tenant to secure his rights are limited
to his vacating the premises a nd then claiming termination of the
lease or himself repairing the premises, financing the cost and thereafter cla iming a set-off against future rents.
Such limitations, while onerous to all tenants, are intolerable in
their application to poor people. Their choice of accommodations
within their means is minimal; they can neither finance repairs nor,
often, even gain access to the parts of the premises requiring repair.
\Vhile states and local governments, in proper concern for the lives,
hea lth and safety of all citizens, prescribe mi nimum standa rds for
housing accommodations, out-dated legal practices thwart the poor in
direct assertion of their rights.
II
Reforma tion of l a ndlord-tenant law is a state and local g overnment
responsibility burdened with . consequence to the National welfa re.
While appropriate solutions may vary between jurisdictions, certain
broad principles must apply throughout:
A.
St a te a n~ J oca l enforc ement of building, health a nd safety codes
must be stpe~ml ipeg ~nd imprQY?d. Admini§trgtive flexibili ty ~nd
f~@t fin ding muet be fo@tered and the ~ower af local courts
streng thened. The obligation of code compliance must be a prior
cha r g e on the property itself and a ll rights the~ein, rather than
merely a persona l obligation of the ownero
B.
Complianc e with law mu st be a basi c part of every agreement and
every righto Obligat i ons of landl or d an d tenant alike, as provided in buil ding , h ealth and safety codes , must b e construed as
cr ea ting indepen dent righ ts enforcea bl e by dir e c t l ega l acti on.
Determination of such i ssues in the cour t r oom must b e facilitate d .
Co
Public funds mu st not reward illegal -conduc t . Appropriate rent
withholding pr o.cedures must be devel oped for the welfar e tenant.
Appropria te acti ons must be taken in all public acquisitions to
the end that pric e s paid disregard valu es achieved from income
�derived in property operation contrary to minimum. building, health .
and safety codes.


* * * * * * * * * * * *


While these responsibilities are local, the Federal Government can and
has assisted:
1.
The establishment of neighborhood legal centers in slum.s by
the Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity, who are
making a major effort to help tenants secure their rights to
safe and sanitary housing.
2.
The convening of a Conference by the Attorney General to develop new procedures to insure that the rights of tenants are
fully and effectively enforced.
3.
The appointment of a Commission to make a comprehensive review
of codes, zoning, taxation and development standards.
I
III
Programs and activities of the Federal Government, while indirect in
tha t enforcement of fire prevention, housing , building , hea lth and
sanitation law is a responsibility of local government, can be of decisive importance:
A.
1.
Section lOl(a) of Public Law 171 qualifies Federal assista nce
upon the appropriate local public bodies underta king "p ositive
programs" and "a workable program" for community improvement
through the
"adoption, modernization , administration and enfor cemen t
of housing, zoning, building an d other loca l laws, codes
a nd r egula tions r ela ting to - l an d use a nd a dequat e sta ndar~s of health, s a nit a tion a nd safety f or b~il ding s , inGl1H'iin6 t}rn lUH; ~ng, CHHHlPEl.IlQY gf dwel:U,n~§ e ,,
Administrative regulations heretofor e issued by the Secretary
of Housing ari d Urban Development should be further cla r ifi ed to
dire ct s pec i fic enum.erat i on and a tt ention to t he applic a ti on
and enf or cement of loca l co de s a n d or dina nc es rel ated to life,

l i ves an d heal th of occupants , i rresp ective of whether a basi ca lly s ound and sta ble area is t hereby crea t e d o
2.
The Se cretary of Housing and Ur ba n Devel opment can furt her impl ement t he purp os es of the l egi s l a ti on t hrough t he dev el opment
of nati onal uniform s t a t ist i cal repor t ing, whereby yardsticks
of comparabl e municipa l performance may be e stablished.

\
�3.
B.
The Secre tary of Housing a nd Urban Development can tighten
ex isting regula tions to t h e end tha t mortga g e insuran c e a va ila b le through the Federa l Housing Administration for prop erty
acquisition, rehabilitation and improvement must be conditioned up on code complia nce. At t h e s ame time, mortgag e in s urance
a nd g rants under Section 312 ca n be promoted and exp edited .
Special personnel can be . designa ted in each insuring office of
the Federal Housing Administra tion with the specific assignment
of coordinating the insuring a ctivities of that ag ency with
city building departments and community organizations to the
end that provision of proper financing for complete rehabilit a tion to meet code standards be greatly expedited.
The Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare can, by admin istrative regulation, require that each local authority pa rticipa ting
in a dministration and disbursement of relief funds establish , in
collabora tion with a ppropriate local authorities, systems of housing inspection and certification to the end that appropriate withholding of rents 1 where justified , be undertaken.
1
C.
D.
All DBpartments of Government concerned with property acqui s ition,
wherever Fe deral investment is involved , can require tha t t h e acquiring public authority demonstrate and certify that no par t of
the a ward granted or payment made represents values achieve d by
. operation contrary to local codes - of building , health and safety.
All Depa rtments of Government dealing with the a udit a n d ver ifica tion of real estate and mortg age loa n a ssets ca n require ·cer tification t h at as to the property conc erned no complaints are present ly pending by any local authority charging violation of local minimum codes of building, health and safety.

�"By its very nature, a program of code enforcement re quire s
property owners to make substantial investments in repairs
and improvements in order to avoid prosecution. Unless
that investment is coupled to an increase in rental r e turns
or property values, the owner is likely never to be able to
recover the cost. But since we are still dealing with a
seriously blighted area, neither the increase in rentals or
property values is likely to occur. The present tenants
usually cannot afford higher rentals, particularly if occupancy is reduced and there are f ewer wage earners to pay
the rent. Tenants with higher incomes usually cannot be
persuaded to move into a still blighted area. The value of
the property in a priva te sale cannot be expected to increase
unless the ~entals increase nor would the repairs or improvements add significantly to the property value in the event
of a future public condemna tion.
It has been argued that rig id code enforcement in deteriorated areas will so depress property values that new pu.rcha sers will be able to afford to make the necessary repa irs
without increasing rents. In fact, this does not happen on
any broad scaleo While our understanding of the factors
whi ch motivate owners of slura property is very limited, a
recent study does c ast some light on this. The larg e
'sophisticated' owners of slum property usually have so
little of their own money invested that any f easible reduction in cost of purchasing could not equal the cost of needed repairs. On the other hand, the small 'unsophistica ted'
investor is usua lly incapable of taking advantage of any
s uch economic effects.
i'In sum, it is our belief that concentrated code enforcement
by itself in badly blighted areas would result in more turmoil than improvement of housing conditions. But to s ay that
this one appr oa ch will not work is not a satisfac tory a nswer
to a very real and pressing problem. Althoug h we have not
yet arrive d at anything we regard as a n adequate sol ut i on,
it would be extremely v a lua bl e to pres ent some of t h e problems and p ossibl e approaches in order to get broader con siderati on." (Staff Report, Housing and Urban Devel opment,

�If it be assumed that power of stat e and local g overnment to regulate
housing condition in order to preserve life, health and safety i s a
prior charg e on all interests in prope~ty, then the equation as t o the
feasibility of property repair to minimum standard is simply whether
the gross rent roll will cover current operating expense, current taxes,
and principal and interest payments to cover the cost of repair. Antecedent mortgage commitments, as well as the equity investment, are irrelevant to the issueo Were mortgagees and property owners , con trary
to existing assumptions, convinced of this contingency, their conduct
concerning property repair and maintenan ce would be altered signif icantly. In these circumstances, it would not be necessary that public action be asserted against each property in a given neighborhood in order
to reverse the prior assumptions.
A formidable case exists, therefore, for selection of a few neighborhoods in which, after complete inventory of structure condition, ownership, mortgage debt , and prior history of code enforcement , an experimental progr~m be undertaken by the appropriate local public authority,
working in collaboration with the local community, in which a number of
the possible Federal sanctions here enumerated were employed. The effort is attractive in:
1.
Presenting a new attack upon the syndrome of community decline
and collapsea
2.
Offering promise of reduced public expenditures by imposing
costs upon non-conforming properties.
3.
Generating increased voluntary compliance with minimum codes

PILOT PROGRAM TO PROMOTE HOME OWNERSHIP AMONG SLUM RESIDENTS \
T e desire to own a home is a basic part of our tradition. Today 62% of American families hav
· achieved that desire. Yet there are still millions of families who would like to own their own
homes, but cannot. They are too poor to do so under present financing arrangements. At least
half a million such households now rent substandard housing in our metropolitan areas. A chance
to own a decent home of their own might have a profound effect upon their attitudes toward
society. Instead of feeling like frustrated and helpless transients floating along in the poverty
and fil th of the slums, they could begin developing a sense of control over their own destiny.
They could gradually build a stake in their communities, and would learn how to use and benefit
from legal and political institutions they now regard with hostility.
Furthermore, provid ing these low-income househo lds with home-ownership assis tance would merely
be giving them the same advantage we already ext end to millions of middle-income and upperincome households. These households now receive a large subsidy in the form of federal income
tax deductions for the interest and property taxes paid on their homes. This subsidy amounts to at
least $1.7 billion per year for just the wealthiest 20% o f our families. This is doub le the housing
subsidy we extend to the poorest 20% in the form of all public housing payments, we lfare paymen ts,
and tax deduc t ions combined. Clearly, tax deduc t ions aren't much help to families with little or
no taxable income. So simp le justi ce demands tha t we encou rage home ownership fo r them in some
·
o the r way mo re su ited to thei r needs .
Therefore, we recommend enactmen t o f a pi lo t program o f aid to low- income fam il ies to he lp them

of minor mai ntenance, fi na ncing, and other respon sibilities of ownership. Fourth, new owners
from the lowest-income groups would need a monthly housing supplement similar to the ·rent
supplement, but applicable to ownership payments. Fifth, some tenants in resident-landlord
buildings would receive rent supplements. Sixth, owners should receive follow-on counseling
about financing and repairs. Seventh, the public agency running the program would agree to
buy back the housing involved during a fixed period in case the owners could not carry the
required burdens.

�A Pilot Program to .Promote Home Ownership Among Slum Residents
Page 2
A pilot program incorporating these devices could be undertaken for 10,000 units at on annual
cost of about $5.1 million for rent and ownership subsidies, plus a reservation of $125 million in
below-market-rate (3%) loan funds, plus admin istrotive costs. These figures assume that ownership opportunities would be extended to even the lowest-income families.
This program would improve the life of slum residents in several ways besides allowing them to
become home-owners. Many would take much better care of their properties and develop a
stronger interest in good neighborhoods. Even landlord-tenant relations might improve because
resident landlords would replace absentees. Hence conditions in slums might be significantly
improved even for people not involved in the program.

In our opinion, this is a prosram solidly in the American tradition, and well worth trying.

STATEMENT ON HOMEOWNERSIDP BY THE POOR
The Task Force is convinced that the encouragement of homeownership by those now living in slum areas would have great value.
It
is an idea solidly in the Americ0ll tradition, and well worth trying as a
pilot program.
Offering slum dwellers a chance to own a decent home of their
own might have a profound effect upon their attitudes toward society.

I.
stead of feeling like frustrated and helpless transients floating along
1-:
in the poverty and filth of the slums, they could begin developing a stake
in their community and a chance for control over their own destiny.
It should be stressed, however, that if the program is to actually
reach the poor, substantial subsidies will be required.
II
Based on an ex-
perience in Pittsburgh, the acquisitio~ and rehabilitation of a dwelling
cost $10,400 which required for all charges a monthly peyment of $lo6
or
an income of $5,000 -- even with 40 year, 3 percent financing .
The justification for housing subsidies for the poor is more
t han mor ally compelling .

The federal government subsidi zes middle - income

t ax deductions.
Recommendations :
The Task For ce ther efor e r ecommends ~ t hat the f ollowing
criteria should apply:
I
1.
The pilot program should seek to provide opportunities for
---
all forms of ownership among sl~ dwellers:
single family ownership,
cooperative or condominimn ownership, or ownership by resident landlords
of multi-family dwellings·.
�,
2.
Subsidies in the form of low interest loans, rent sup-
plements, or "ownership supplements" should be provided to reach lowincome levels.
3. The program should provide opportunity for ownership
outside the slum, as well as in it.
4.
The program should be based on rehabilitation of the unit·
to standard condition, and prior to assumption of ownership by the slum
dweller.
5.
The program should be undertaken only where major efforts
are underway to upgrade the surrounding neighborhood.
6.
Organizational capacity should be provided to acquire and
r ehabilitate the property, prepare persons for ownershf p responsibility,
and provide continuing financial and other counseling.
7.
The program should provide agreement to buy back the
house during a limited period in case owners cannot manage the newly
assumed burdens.

COMMENTS ON ·THE

Concept
In its proposal for the establishment of an Urban Development Corpor-
ation* HUD asserts, "The greatest domestic challenge that faces America
today is the need to rehabilitate and rebuild the nation's slum neighborhoods and the 5,000,000 substandard and deteriorating dwellings· in

The Proposal points out that .
neither government nor industry can do this alone, and proposes a
nationally based, private, non-profit institution--UDC--which has access
to substantial amounts of FHA insured mortgage credit, and the ability
to offer major inducements to cities, industry, labor, and residents of
slums.

"·A Proposal for a Nationally Based Private Non-Profit Urban Development

�,,
. 2.
The kernel of the UDC concept is that _the large and orderly market
it provides will produce an efficient,aggressive and technologically
advanced rehabilitation industry.
This new industry will serve the
total rehabilitation market, private as .well as public.
2.
Feasibility
There appear to be :fbur key questions concerning feasibility of this
proposal:
Technological
Social
Scale of operations required
Acceptability
The technological feasibility of massive rehabilitation of many types
of slum dwellings has been demonstrated.
the 114th Street program in Harlem.
The most striking example is
There the buildings were largely
-~
gutted, and attractive, healthy, modern apartments · created, one f or each
of the far below ~standard units that were scrapped .
HUD estimates that
the re are more than 5 million units in the nation's s l ums that are
structurally s ound and susceptible to such rehabilitat i on.
That many slum neighborhoods have potential to r espond to the impact
of rehab ilitation i s a lso strikingly demonstrated by the 114th Street
experiment.
The pride shown by the residents of the r ehabilitated units,
the low l eve l of vandalism during construction, and the enthus iasm of the
ne i ghborhood for the project illus trate this.
HUD estimates that
5 million units suitable f or rehabilitation are located in slum neigh~
borhoods with the potential to respond to the improvements offered.
�,
3.
The minimum effective scale is largely a matter of judgement.
Experts consulted seem to agree that the scale proposed (30,000 units
annually
in the first two years, 50,000 units/thereafter) is sufficient to
provide the leverage needed with labor, contractors, the materials
industry, and city administrations to achieve the innovations desired
and to visibly affect the quality of life in the nation's slums.
A
commitment to only the first 30,000 units may be sufficient but on this
opinions differ .
HUD has been in contact with industry, labor and city representatives and reports that in every case those interviewed were persuaded
of the merits of the UDC idea.
Organized labor's reaction was favorable
to the suggestion of a national contract with UDC containing work rules
providing for .
appropriate to eff icient rehabilitation and/crews which i nclude labor
from the slum neighborhoods .
Builders and developers were pleased with
the signif icant r ole the private. sector could play.
Manufacturer s
expressed i nterest in undertaking research and development of products
f or a new r ehabilitation market.
3-.
Co s t s
In t he UDC p r oposal the average tota l ·cost pe r dwel ling units is
estimated t o be $13, 000 .
Th i s is a conserva t i ve estimate bas ed on the
very limited experience to date.
There is reason t o ·b elieve that UDC
activity will bring the unit cos t s down due to economies of scale ,
(
�4.
improved contractor management) increased labor productivity) and to
technological innovations induced by the new rehabilitation industry.
That there will be cost reduction is highly likelyJ and that this reduction will spur private rehabilitation seems probable) but there is no
basis for quantitatively estimating the degree of reduction possible
and, in all likelihood) will not be until after a -few years of UDC
operation.
It is possible that costs could go as low as $9J000 per unit.
The UDC proposal suggests that the initial 30J000 units be financed
half with BMIR (Below Market Interest Rate) mortgage credit and half with
FNMA special assistance funds for rent supplement dwellings.
The annual
rent supplement funds that would be required depends ) of course J on the
average ability to pay.
If the BMIR funded 15)000 units were all rented
to families with annual incomes over $4J000J the annual rent supplement
required for the remaining lSJ000 units would be between $12.2 million
and $19.6 million) depending upon the t enants' incomes.
The mortgage credit and rent supplement funds required for the first
five year s of ope r ation are shown in Table l J based on the estimat ed cos t
of $13 J 000/uni t.
The ave r age annual te nant income can be expected t o be
be tween $2, 000 (whi ch was the 1965 nat iona l average income o f t he 2. 5 million s lum fami l ies with i ncomes be l ow $4, 000/year) and $4 , 000 whic h i s typic al
of income s in Harl em.
The commitment to future r e nt suppl ement payme nts depend s , of course,
on the degree to which c os t s a re re duced by the new r e hab ilitation

4.
Additional Benefits
a.
Cost Reduction for Private Rehabilitation
The total market for rehabilitation is far greater than the
500,000 units proposed for UDC action during the next decade.
Even if
half of the 5 million units presently suitable for rehabilitation are
torn down, the private sector market for rehabilitation is 4 times
larger than that proposed for UDC over the next decade.
Cost reductions
stimulated by UDC will therefore pay a large dividend in terms of reduced
economic rent for slum families .
This ' tan be considered - to· mu1tiply tp :
by 5 the savings which are reflected in the rehabilitation directly
sponsored by UDC .
b.
Slum Employment
Rehabilitation is, and probably will remain, a labor-intensive
industry.
Approximately one-half man year of on-site labor is required
per rehabilitated unit .
If half of this were to be provided by local
labor, r ehabi l itation at t he ~ate of 50, 000 units per y ear will directly
employ some 12, 000 slum dwelle r s .
Since , presumably, the same people
wou ld partic.ipate in t he private rehabilitation market , t he number of
slum dwellers employed in the new r ehab i litation indus try might be
so,ooo.
c.
Application of New Tec hnology to New Const r uct i on
The degree t o which technological innovation stimulated by
rehabilitation will be effect ive in r educing the cost of new const ruction
is uncertain.
What is clear is that new products will be used when they
�If
·a.
become available market items, t):J.ereby. improving the quality if not the
cost of new construction.
d.
Interaction With Other Programs
UDC-sponsored rehabilitation activities can strongly reenforce
other programs.
Among these are the Demonstration Cities, home ownership
for slum dwellers, and neighborhood Service Centers.
5.
Additional Problems
a.
Mortgage Terms and Economic Life
~he use of 40 year mortgages (and consequently an implied remaining
economic life of 55 years) has been assumed by HUD.
However, it is by no
means clear that rehabilitation can provide either physical or economic
lifetimes approaching this in a substantial fraction (perhaps most) of the
neighborhoods under consideration.
Reduction of the mortgage terms to
20 years would require an increased annual rent supplement of $330/unit.
b.
Property Acquisition
Limited experience suggests that it is possible to assemble
properties for rehabilitation, u&ing only the threat of rigid code enforcement to keep prices from rising.
Alternately, or in conjunction,
condemnation proceedings can be used in Urb~n Renewal Areas.
c.
Rehabilitation vs. New Housing
While rehabilitation has well known social advantages over slum
clearances f ollowed by new construction, it offers far less opportunity
for cost reduction through technological innovations and raises the
thorny problem of the wisdom of investing heavily in obsolescent
'--",
properties.
An intriguing proposal for neighborhood redevelopment using
�n
9.
a mix of rehabilitation and new housing was developed in a working
session on UDC*.
UDC's concern with rehabilitation to the exclusion~£
new housing could become a block to the kind of federal effort needed
to obtain cost reduction through major innbvation<>in construction,
technology and project management.
It has been suggested that the reason the Proposal selected rehabilitation rather than a mixed rehabilitation/new housing objective for
the UDC was the concern that labor in particular (and perhaps the
construction and materials industries as well) would strongly oppose the
UDC unless it clearly restricted its activities to rehabilitation.
is a matter of judgment and could very well be correct.
This
It must be
noted , howev er, that acceptance of UDC might be forthcoming if these
groups realize that new construction based on improved and economizing
technology is inevitable and UDC can provide a sympathetic client with
which they could cooperate to gradually modernize traditional practices.
This is a subject that future staff work might illumine.
d.
Effect on Equity Holders
If the costs of rehabilitation remain high , the federal govern-
ment , UDC and the cities involved will be p~edisposed to use all means

e.
Relationships
The proposed relationships of UDC with the local government,
various national groups, and the neighborhood (including the question of
continuing responsibility for maintenance and upkeep of the rehabilitated
buildings) are largely undefined.
6.
Conclusions
a.
While very many details of UDC remain to be worked out, it appears
highly likely that the major objectives will be met if a strong Presidential
commitment is given.
b.
This is the only practical mechanism that has been found for
visibly improving the quality of slum housing within the next few years.
c.
The minimum effective scale of the UDC is one which can stimulate
a new industry in the U.S.--the rehabilitation industry .
this industry will probably not develop.
Without the UDC
The proposed level of UDC effort
appears to be the minimum needed if it is t o b e successful.
d.
The costs--in terms of below market interest rate mortgage credit
and rent supplements amount to a subsidy of a substantial fraction of
the total rent.
The rent supplements involve a firm long term commitment,
which is uncertain.

I
This is to set down a few ideas for the TF agenda. Some of them spell
out further the ideas I listed at the end of our meeting in Washington on
October 28. The first proposal could be considered in the short-range
category, whereas the other two fall mainly in the longer range category.
They are in rough form and need "debugging," and I leave it to you to judge
whether any of them have utility for the December 1 assignment.
1. A Program for Easing the Situation of Trapped Minority Groups. Let
me first state what is quite obvious to most members of the TF, simply to
underscore the urgency of finding solutions. Two statistics about Washington,
D. C., dramatize the gravity of the situation and provide clear testimony of
the necessity of action -- (1) the fact that approximately 65 percent of the
population of the District are nonwhite, and (2) the fact that approximately
95 percent of the school children are nonwhite. Only Federal employment
opportunities and constant work by concerned community service groups appear
to be keeping this tinderbox from bursting into flame. Though the figures
for other central cities have probably not yet reached these dramatic proportions, the indications are that similar buildups are in process in most
large central cities.
Reports from studies of these areas are clear enough that those trapped
see no relief in sight and that problems involving education, employment,
housing, health and opportunities for upward mobility have reached a critical
mass. As brought out in our session on October 28, a total program is urgently
needed to bring this segment of the population into the Great Society. Asstnning that very strong recommendations in this respect are presented to the
President and become operative, I would urge inclusion in the total Administration package a new HUD program -- call it a "Program for Humanizing Metropolitan Areas'r or a "Program for Urban Development, 11 or some other positivesounding substitute title for "urban renewal. 11 Two features would distinguish
it from earlier emphases: first, it would set up renewal and housing
programs on a metropolitan-wide basis as the new Tttle II type of emphasis
in the Demonstration Cities and Metropolitan Development Act has achieved for
other federal grant and loan programs, and second, it .would expand on the
workable program" concept to require certain steps for humanizing metropolitan
areas as a basis for qualifying for loan and grant assistance.
More particularly, under such a program current statutory provisions for
the array of different grants - in-aid, loan, and rent supplement authorizations
would be amended so that the eligible LPA 1 s would be new-type Metropolitan

. Area Development Commissions .ll In addition tD the jurisdictional change,
the key feature of these new Commissions would be an entire new philosophy
in the execution of the traditional renewal, public housing, rehabilita tion
housing, cooperative housing and middle income housing programs, and the
new rent supple ment program. While the Demonstration Citie s Program woul d

or cooperatives and be planre d variably, some with and some without rent
. supplements. The key concept in the development of plans for these enclaves
would be voluntary open housing guarantees.JI Enclaves in outlying suburban arec!,s would be encouraged to receive small numbers of deprived
families .f rom the central city, and those in central areas would be designed t~ receiv~Jamilies of varying socio-economic circumstances seeking
close-in locations; For success of such a _Program a great deal depends on
develop~ng responsible participation by re.sidents of enclave connnunities
and in keeping the scale of adjustment at
low key.

To -achieve the full leverage ;iJa program of this kind, special related
efforts ··in local services, educatlon, employment, health, social work, and
recreation would be developed, especially in the central city areas. · By
and large schools would be found in interstitial areas bebveen enclaves and
depended upon to help supply a cementing force to the efforts in surrounding
enclaves. In short' the Program f .o r HumaniZ>ing Met'ropolitan Areas is based on
a philosophy of responsible involvement of small groups in making their . block
or locale a 11 foster home 11 . for . a few new families. A backup effort in s pecial
education, employment and other services would be an essential feature of the
Program. In effect, in the large me tropolitan a r eas this Program in a
_m etropolitan-wide framework would become a complement to the Demonstration
Cities Program which centers on the .c entral city problem.
2. A St epped-Up Effort in Re search on Inter-Group Re lations and
Liva bility in the City. The severa l rece nt crise s in ce ntral cities of
large me tropolitan areas and the groping a ction efforts to alleviate t he se
situa tions cle arly indicate a failure in ba ckup r esearch. In ·some r espe cts
more serious, there is a lack of an evaluation effort on action taken which
would enable conclusions to be drawn on t he relative effectiveness of
measures used.
In any effort to institute a ction programs in are as· as sensitive as
tho se of trappe d popula tions, and ce rtainly in a ny program to e liminate
ca u ses of t he se conditi ons , a major r esearch thrust is r e quired, one on · t he
order of that which this country has mounted in space research or in medica l
research in recent years.
_....,, ,
Ce rtainly the s ocial problems of today s hould- be hi gh in priority of
attent ion . But .in be late dly re searching t he s e pr oblems , t he big prob l ems
of tomorr ow should not be over looke d . One pr oblem r apidly desce nding on

is speculation abo~t two-house livi ng arrangements becoming much more widespread wit h attendant changes in re c rea tion empha ses and traffic patterns;
and there are all sorts of unknowns i nvolve d i n new transportation and
communications technologies. With ;1 11 this i n t e rest and speculation, t here
is little systerna tic research going on that would en able cities to take
account of these changes in the pub l i c work s a nd service programs of a

to embark on programs of a more pos i tive kind de signed for the Great Society.
A thir d research emphasis clea ly needed is one which frontally
e xamines the new kind of urban envi r onment res presented in the belts of
urba n deve l opme nt extending over seve r a l sta t es . These appear to be superce d ing the metropolitan area as a n ur ban environment (just at the time whe n

Sec. 1011 on the Urba n Environmen t a l Stud i es of the Demonstration Cities

�Notes taken at meeting with Joe Califano, White House, Saturday, October 22, 1966
Mr. Califano
The Task Force is to have a short and long-range agenda with respective deadlines
being December 1 and June 1.
For the short-range the questions:-
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
( 5)
Should we encourage home-ownership in the slums and if so by what methods?
Does the idea of an urban development corporation for rehabilitation make
sense?
How can we honor the Presidential pledge to prov ide legal services for
tenants in the ghetto?
How can we honor the Presidential pledge for neighborhood service centers?
What about the proposed metropolitan expediter?
Task Force should proceed without constraints of costs and politics.
We should
keep in mind several other task forces operating in areas close to ours.
For
example, the "In-House" task force under Shriver to develop more permanent answers
to the hot summer problem.
Another headed by Bill Carmichael on personnel for the
Great Society .
The subject of transportation is currently being thoroughly examined with a view
towards setting up a new Department of Transportationj to that extent it's not a
subject on our task force's agenda.
Two Congressional committees having the same personnel will be holding hearings
during our tenure.
One chaired by Senator Muskie, exploring the proposal for a
domestic security council.
The second chaired by Senator Ribicoff which will
resume in December will not call government witnesses for a while.
It will con centrate first on non-governmental experts, beginning with the problems of data
and areal power arrangements.
Meeting with Secretary Weaver
Concerned with:(1)
(2)
( 3)
the development of national urban policy respecting migration and location of
the national populationj
encouraging a more positive role by the states in urban policy developmentj
metropolitan organization.
Robert C. Wood
Under Secretary
Department of Housing and Urban Developmen~
HUD is now concerned with several major pr ob~ems:-
�-2-
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
working at s cale: fo r example, they now have $2 billion of urban
renewal appli cations with only $200 million available;
building up the staff ing c apabilitie s of the Department;
general r eorgani zation;
de-centralization of HUD operations -- bett er informat i on systems are
needed if de- centralization is to b e carried out.
The new programs occupying HUD' s attention of late: "model" cities; new
connnunities; expediter; metr opolitan desks; metropolitan planning.
HUD has been pr oceeding on the strategy of open opti ons; the expansion of free
choice for the individual; model for neighborhood facilities; home ownership
& jobs in the ghetto; provide count erparts f or the public s ector.
Wood's adv i ce t o the Task Force:(1)
Address ourselves to thoughts about cities; not only response t o them
and t he ir needs.

allow for several forms of ownership ranging from
individual ownership to cooperat i ve.
�-3Task Force questions included:-
.
(1)
Are there other and more effective techniques for getting the desired
results other than encouraging ownership?
(2)
Can you use old and new techniques for driving down the costs of property
in the slum areas?
These costs are now being sustained by present governmental programs.
(3)
Wha~ can we say about the possibility of "steady state" maintenance?
(4)
Aren't we trying to eliminate slums and how does slum ownership fit
into that objective?
William D. Carey
Assistant Director
Bureau of the Budget
So far no comprehensive strategy has been arrived at in the federal government
replying to varying proposals for the neighborhood information service centers.
During the summer several agencies produced "talking documents" for the Cabinet
Cormnitt ee.
Then the President's Syracuse speech "overtook" the Task Force with
a . "get cracking" order. . There emerged a servic e group for the facilities approach
of HUD, the latter focusing on recreation, etc.
They were then talking about
$50 million drawn from "pooled" program monies.
Presently they are thinking of experiments in 14 cities of 3 classes -- the sponsor. ing coalition would be OEO , HUD, Labor and HEW.
The purpose would be to provide
one-stop soc ial services to use 3 different models.
Physical facilities would
not be the primary emphasis.
The key would be to br ing toget her all serv i ces and
clients and evaluate the experiments.
Ralph Tayl or
As si stant Secretar y for Demon st rat ions and Int er governmental Relations
HUD
If model cities program is to succeed, need a rehabilitation industry of a scale
that hasn't yet emerged.
Industry, large contractors and labor ar e s~itti sh.
The proposed UDC approach using low interest rates and much volume as l evers,
hopefully might break through. The question remains whether the UDC would have
its own H&D or let industry do this according to performance standar d s that UDC
would set.
Major questions have to do with the market .
Another question has
to do with local mechanisms.
Indi genous c9operatives might be one answer.
'
As for the proposed expediter -- it ' s now be ing c alled a representative.
It
should not be confused with the idea of the metropolitan coordinator which is
dead.
The representative is to be the federal "pr esence " -- housed in HUD but
�-4available to all agencies.
It would be a source of information on federal
· programs; clearing house; .liaison; feedback; facilitator.
HUD is ready to
go in six experimental cities not necessarily the model c ities and concentrating
on state capitals .

�FINANCING METHODS
PUBLIC HOUSING ADMINISTRATION
The 1965 Housing Act authorizes the Public Housing Authority to fund the
purchase and rehabilitation of existing structures through local Housing
Authorities.
0
This program permits local Housing Authorities to contract a property purchase and rehabilitation with a builder. Upon project completion, the
builder is reimbursed for total project costs (land acquisition-rehabilitati~n).
The project title and management reverts to the local Housing Authority.
FNMA financing is not included in this provision. · The Public Housing
Authority makes theappraisal, reviews cost contracts and will accept a
cost figure from a bui Ider without competitive bids. Upon completion,
the project is turned over (turnkey) to the local Housing Authority .
The one requirement under this program stipulates that acquisition and
rehabilitation costs do not exceed 90%. new construction costs.

Special Task Force meeting in Washington
I talked with Ardee Ames and the meeting is set for Thursday,
December 15th at 10 :00 a. m.
I explained to him you inability to
get there before noon, and he said that it usually took them an

FHA 221 Mort gage Insuranc e for Low and Yio derate
Priced Homes.
Nature and Purpose :
A program of mortgag e insurance to assist p rivate i n dustry
for the c ons tructi on or rehabilitation of individua_ sales
h ousing , and for the purchase and r epa ir of new or existing
multi - family units (up to 4 - family units) that are to be
sold or rented to low - income fam ilies .

urban r enewal or 0-.:-. : ..-:..· g ove rnment a ction . Also for fc.r:-.ili es
wi th low or moderate incomes and elderly or handicappe d persons .
FHA d o es not g rant mort gage insurance d irectly to the
contrac to r . I nstead upon approach by a con tra ctor , and
foll owing app rova l a s to pr op e rty standards, location, need,
e tc., t he FHA issues a commit tment to the con tr a ctor to
issue 221 mortgage insuranc e to the buyers of t h e homes once
th ey are built . The contra ct o r then finances his operations
a s normal on t he private market .
221 mortgag e i nsu rance is also ava ilabl e f or non - new const ruction
when an ind ivi dual is buying a house and rehab ilitat ing it to
live in. The s ame elig i bilities and down payments apply .
Normally, the FHA mort gage insurance will be for all c osts .
Howeve r, if constru ction has started on the house b e fore
the 221 i ns uranc e 1'ias rec eiv ed , th e mort gage i nsur ed cannot
be for mo re t han 90% of value. Ad ditiona lly, i f the borrower
is no t to be an o wne r - occupier (for example, a person renting
hous i ng or mul ti - family units), . or if he is refinancing the
p roperty, the mo rt gage c annot be more than 85% o f t he a mount


Ln:;n,n·ab:Le for an own@ t=occupie r., or 85% of the prop ei :cty v lu ,


wh ichever is less .
Norma l ly , the max i mum mort gage term is 30 years . How ev e r,
it c an be increased to 40 years when:
( a) in t he c ase of a d is plac ed family, the FHA dete r m~nes
the mort gagor c annot make the required payments on
a short e r - t erm mor t gage,
( b)
in the c ase of ot h er mo rtgag ors, the mor t gag o r is ~he
owner-occupant . and the FHA determines he c an 1 t ~ake
the necessa ry payments in a shorter - term mort g a g e ,
p rovided the h ouse was a pp roved by FHA or VA before,
and ins pe c ted during, construc t ion .
Normal ly , builders have sold home s at a pri c e allowing
fo r the maximu..'n mortgage to c over the pu rc hase price .
Th ere f ore , the average purchase price would n o r,.ally
b e the max imum mortgage to cover the purc hase price.
Theref ore, ~t he avera ge pu r chase pric e would normally be
the maximum mortgag e plus $ 200 for certifie d buyers or
p lus 3% fo r other s.
In
Atla nt a t he maximum mo rtgage has ri sen a s the national
maximum has risen. However, as t he maximum mortgage in

It shoul d be noted that mortgage s on the multi - family

FHi\ 221 ( d) ( 3) Mortgag e Insurance At Below
Ma rket Ra te Int eres t For Ren~a l and Coop erativ e
Housing For _Families of Low and Moderate Income
Nature and Purpose :
There are a number of famil i es whose incomes ·a re too h i gh
for p ublic housing , but not high enough to comp ete fo r
adequate hous i ng in the private marke t. Some of these
familie s have been forced into the mar ke t because of urban
renewal or . other gove r nmental action .
To help the se families obta in housing at p ric es they c an
afford, ~h e Fede r a l Housing Administration insures mortgages
on special terms unde r the provisions of Section 22l(d)(3)
of the Nat ional Housing Act .
·
To keep t h e rents within t h e means of the p eople f or whom
the hous ing i s intended , the Act autho riz es a mort gag e
interest rate below the current market rate on FHA- insured
mortgages .
Priorities f or occupancy are g ive n to families dis placed by
g overnmental action. Othe r families whose incomes are within
th e limits e stablishe d b y FEA a l so can qualify for occupancy,
as c a n single -elderly or handic apped persons .
Proposed new construction, and existing properties r equiring
rehabilitation, with five or more units may be eligible for
mort g age insurance .
A mortgag e i nsu r ed under Section 22l ( d)(3) may c a rry a
marke t inte r est rate (at the p r e sent time not more than
pe rc e nt), or a below-market rat e .
5t
Under th ese p rovisions, the intere st rate durin g construc~ion
may be as h i gh as the establis hed FHA maximum interest r a te
a t the time of construction . Upon fina l e n do r sement of t h e
loan, th e interest r a te will b e lowered t o 3 p erc e n t ·. FEA
wa ives th e mortgage insurance premiu m o f ½ perc ent f or p rojects
