The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mayor of the City of Atlanta
Dear Mayor Allen:
As you know, federally supported programs in the poverty and
manpower training fields require some degree of local contribution.
Presently, the local contribution is a small percentage of the total and
we believe that most municipalities meet it with in-kind rather than cash
contributions. However, there is continuing discussion in Congress to
raise the local share. Municipalities thus would be required to assume
a greater portion in cash.
We are interested in learning, for a study we are conducting,
Atlanta's present contribution of municipal tax-levied funds to federal
programs and also your estimate of your city's capability to pick up a
greater share. In particular we are interested in the following programs:
Community Action Programs under Title II of the Economic Opportunity Act
(EQOA); the Neighborhood Youth Corps under Title IV of the EOA; the Work
Experience Program under Title V of the EOA; the Work Study Program urder
the Higher Education Act; and Manpower Training Programs under the Manpower
Development and Training Act,
We appreciate your cooperation with this project.
Howard N. Mantel |!
