Dear Mayor Allen:
The February meeting of the community Relations
commission was held this past Friday, February 28th, and a
substantial portion of the meeting was taken up with discussion of the so-called welfare payments freeze. "
There was a great amount of confusion as to just
exactly what was involved in the "freeze." However, it
appears that the federal government presently plans to
restrict welfare grants to the states beginning July 1, 1969,
which would in turn cause some reduction in the payments to
individual recipients. It was the strong consensus of the
community Relations commission that any reduction in the
individual welfare payments - particularly in the summer
month of July - would increase unrest and the possibility
for general trouble in the community o
It is clear that the whole question of the "freeze "
needs to be studied and clarified , and I have asked the staff
of the commission to undertake such a study . I have also
talked with Dan sweat this morning who is also studying the
matter.
�Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
March 3, 1969

If the problem exists as it now appears, the
Commission will be available to assist you in any way in
attacking the problem.
Sincerely,
