Dear John:

In response to your memo of August 20th concerning City action
resulting from the manpower seminar which you sponsored on April 8th
of this year, I would like to offer the following comments.

The City of Atlanta still does not have an official manpower staff
financed and controlled by city government. However, Atlanta has a
rather unique situation in that the local Community Action Agency has

a well developed manpower staff which is serving the needs of Atlanta
in a satisfactory manner considering the limitations of resources a-
vailable. The City at this point in time will probably continue this
relationship on manpower with the CAP Agency unless a major shift in

the funding by block grants through the state and/or city by the federal
government make a change necessary.

The CAP Agency in Atlanta has four identifiable manpower components
which are the Atlanta Concentrated Employment Program funded by U. S$.
Department of Labor with a staff of approximately 120, Neighborhood Youth
Corps Out-of-School Program funded by U. 5. Department of Labor with a
staff of 10, a Job Corps GATE House Program with a staff of four, and
a working relationship with the Atlanta Office of the State Employment
Service funded jointly by the State Employment Service and O£O versatile
money with a staff of 16. Last year's expenditures on all these com-
ponents of the Atlanta area was approximately $4,340,000.00.

I hope this information will satisfy the questions that you posed
in your memo.
