Dear Mr. Mantel:

In reply to your letter of July 1, the following information is

1. We made the following expenditures to EOA:
1966 $ 60,000

1967 75,000
1968 100, 000

2. We participate in a Neighborhood Youth Corps Program as a
delegate or subĀ«agency of EOA who administers the overall
program, No cash appropriation is made for this purpose.
The City's total contribution is made up of supervisory time.

We participate in the Atlanta Concentrated Employment
Program (ACEP) also as a sub-agency to EOA. The City's
contribution to this program is also supervisory time,

not cash,

I am enclosing a copy of the estimated cost of the total summer
program with the source of funds indicated. As noted, the EOA grant
is $325, 000 out of a total cost of $1,826, 469.

Mr. Mantel

The City's ability to pick up a greater share of funding of Federal
programs is extremely limited at this time. As you probably know,
our basic source of revenue in the City of Atlanta is ad valorum
tax and we have been unable to obtain State legislation which would
enable us to levy a sales tax or income tax,

Sincerely yours,

Ivan Allen, Jr.
