Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mayor Allen: The Atlanta Planned Parenthood Association was organized in November 1965 with the main objective to make family planning education and services available to the 50,000 medically in- digent women in the Atlanta area, Prior to that time conven- ient evening and neighborhood family planning services were _ almost nonexistent in Atlanta. Only through the financial support and encouragement of EOA was it possible to initiate our program of neighborhood ser- vices as early as January 1966 and to expand our services so that at the present time we have seven family planning clinics and nine family planning sessions per week, Between January 1966 to May 1968 we helped 3,349 new patients obtain family planning services, This means that more than 3,000 families have been helped to achieve satisfactory family living. The executives and personnel of EOA have been most cooperative in financial matters as well as with helpful advice and sug- gestions, In our daily contact with residents of EOA neigh- borhoods we have found all of the staff at the various EOA centers deeply concerned about the residents in their area and unfailingly willing to cooperate in an attempt to be of service and help, We strongly recommend that EOA be continued as a community action agency for Atlanta and Fulton County. a Ie bln Leper GF abit Mrs. Sélian D.

The EOA Board now has nineteen appointed members, seven each by Atlanta and Fulton County, one by the two governments jointly, and two each by Gwinnett and Rockdale Counties. It also has fourteen members elected by the poor, one each from the twelve Neighborhood Service Areas in Atlanta and Fulton County, one in Gwinnett County, and one in Rockdale County. The elected representatives of the poor comprise at least one-third of the Board, as required. The Neighborhood organization has worked well, so it seems wise to retain these fourteen area units, with one representative each, as the basic numerical control, The law requires that one-third of the Board be representatives of public officials and agencies as selected by them. This number would be fourteen as related to representatives of the poor. The memorandum suggests representation that would provide broad coverage of the public interest, including city interests such as housing, recreation and youth; county interests such as health and welfare; and other general interests such as education, employment, planning and relations, The law also requires that other Board members, up to one-third, be representatives of major private community groups or interests concerned with problems of poverty as selected by the groups. Public officials in the respective jurisdictions may designate which groups will be invited to select representatives. The memorandum suggests eleven private groups most representative of such community interests, The law requires also that the Board be so constituted as to permit the addition of private community groups who feel inadequately represented and successfully petition EOA for membership. Although no such petition is anticipated, it would be possible to add three places to the eleven in the category of community groups without disturbing the required distribution ratio. . The memorandum, prepared after extensive consultation, is our best judgment as to how the EOA Board can meet current membership requirements and best retain the general character and individual representation established by the respective city and county governments, I shall appreciate your agreement or suggested changes in the memo- randum in order that we may present the necessary information for Office of Economic Opportunity approval. Following such approval, I shall wish to consult with you further. Sincerely yours, Zo pf iy : S95 CRA UN Boisfeuvillet Jones

  • Text: SL Sa IE «2 a Eo Ree ee ES a Pe Ee May 21, 1968 TO; Dan Sweat FROM: Pete Jones Reference our conversation regarding reductions in the Atlanta Programs: § HEAD S$ The 1967 Program provided for 3,050 participants and made avail- able $540,409 in Federal Funds. The 1968 Program provides for 3,070 participants and made available $513,649 and within this reduced amount the grant imposes greatly increased medical and dental care and an obligation for child insurance without providing funds therefor. The reduction of 5% in funding with additional 20 participants and increases of medical <« dental and insurance costs has the effect of reducing needed support services or other categories of cost. The 1967 Program provided for 725 participants with Federal funding of $700,000. The 1968 Program provides for the same number of participants but reduces funding to $605,204 (reduction $94,796).included in the $605,204 is approximately $58,000 which was collected as Day Care Fees in 1967 and which ZOA had planned to program into the 1968 projects in addition to Mederal Funds. So actually OEO reduced Federal Finds from $700,000 in 1967 to $547,204 in 1968, a reduction of $152,796 in Federal Funds. We were therefore unable to provide Headquarters staff from Grant Funds for either Head Start or Day Care. This amounts to about $65,000. Jim Parham apparently believes he can get this requested money later on. and $1,323,910. During mid 1967 the amount was reduced to $1,223,910, the slots were reduced to 550 and we were required to run the program fourteen months instead of twelve within the reduced funds. The succeeding Contract October, 1967 + October, 1968 we were authorized 440 slots and $1,149,110. We are now faced with a reduction to 330 slots and a reduction in funding. het AO a ata i i ee ie. — ce a a am ae De Mr. Dan Sweat Page = 2 SAP_EUNDS Our versatile funds for Program Direction and Neighborhood Service Centers, NSC Support and other Grant 306 Funds were reduced from around $2,900,000 in 1967 to $2,350,000 in 1968, a reduction of around $550,000.

You just don't find the "spirit" that Atlanta possesses in any of the other large cities. I had heard from sources here and in Atlanta that you were the person to contact for assistance. Certainly those sources were most accurate. And it was my pleasure to meet you -- and to see firsthand the "proper" way a federal official should be treated.

There is a pretty good ihdication that some big city mayors have called RotheAburg about tutbacks in their programs and have gotten favorable résults. Jim ahd I feel that it would be very helpful if you would telephone Rothenburg and express your concern that the one millign dollar cutback will seriously affect the City's ability to maintain/our momentum in cutting down on hard-core unemployment, If you talk to him it might also be helpful to tell him your support Sam Caldwell's request for the Labor Department to waive a freeze which has existed on conducting power sewing machine training courses, There is a great demand for power sewing machine operaters in the Atlanta area and Caldwell has been attempting to get the ban lifted on training people for this employment. He and Rothenburg are pretty good friends and it might be another plus if we support Sam in this regard. Secretary Rothenburg's number is 202-961-5464, His personal secretary is Miss Eula M.

Atlanta, Georgia 30303 4O4 - 577-1600 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MAYOR ALLEN PROCLAIMS JOB CORPS WEEKS Proclamation Ceremony Opens Job Corps Exhibition in First National Bank Building Lobby Atlanta, Aug. 23 --- Mayor Ivan Allen has proclaimed August 23 to September 6 as 'Job Corps Weeks'' in Atlanta. The official proclamation was presented at 6:00 P.M. on Thursday, August 22, at the First National Bank Building lobby during the preview of a national multimedia exhibition about Job Corps entitled ''A Chance to be Somebody.'' Citing Job Corps as ''an integral and vital part of the national antipoverty program'' which "'has provided a real service to the people of this country and the people of Atlanta'', the Mayor urges all citizens ''to support the commendable work of the Job Corps." The proclamation also refers to the exhibition and its sponsorship by 16 leading industrial and educational organizations. Job Corps, a program of the Office of Economic Opportunity, offers basic education, job training and opportunities for personal development to 16 to 22 year olds who are undereducated, underprivileged, underemployed or unemployed. Enrollment is voluntary, and residence in Job Corps Centers an important feature. The Job Corps story is told in ''A Chance to be Somedody'' through photos, audio tapes, film and original paintings by Corps members. The showing in Atlanta is made possible by Scripto, Inc. It opens on August 23 in the lobby of the First National Bank Building to run through September 6. Admission is free.

Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Jim: Attached is a newspaper article describing the difficulties which have arisen between OEO and the Washington, D. C. CAP agency over a proposed Police-Community Relations Program, You are aware of the progress we have made in Atlanta in breaking barriers of distrust between the Police and citizens. The Crime Prevention program, which was made successful through the cooperative efforts of Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. is widely recognized for its triumphs. The Police Community Service Officer pilot program underway this summer has already demonstrated its potential value. The extension and expansion of these programs as well as the develop- ment of other methods of police-community communication are necessary for the future harmony of Atlanta neighborhoods, It seems to me that if OLO money is available and Washington, D. C, doesn't want it, we should make an effort to obtain some of it for Atlanta, I will be glad to assist you in obtaining funds in this area, if you desire. Sincerely yours, Dan Sweat DS :fy

Parham Executive Administrator December 18, 1968 TO ATLANTA CIVIC LEADERS: People must constantly ask you, as they ask me, "What can I do?" and "How can I find out what's going on?" Because so many are asking these questions, we have tried to provide new ways for them to learn first hand about Atlanta's needs and to become personally involved as volunteers. In January many civic, religious and social groups will join EOA in a START NOW ATLANTA campaign to alert citizens to Atlanta's needs. The week of January 12 will be proclaimed START NOW ATLANTA week. I hope that your organization will be able to par- ticipate by planning special programs, visiting Atlanta's slums as guests of poor people, or by volunteering as a group or as individuals. I am enclosing brief background material plus information about two programs which will be introduced during START NOW ATLANTA week. Please let me know if I can supply other information.
