EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT

OFFICE OF ECONOMIC WASHINGTON, D.C. 20506

OPPORTUNITY

January 10, 1967

Mr, Al Kuettner
675 Sherwood Road, N.E.
Atlanta, Georgia 30324

Dear Mr, Kuettner:

Thank you very much for your letter of December 16, 1966, Although it

is true that the Office of Economic Opportunity has some money available
for research and demonstration programs in housing, none of it has been
earmarked for any specific cities, The work done by the National Com-
mittee against Discrimination in Housing was undertaken some time ago,
before there was any clear idea of what our appropriation for this fiscal
year would be. When our appropriation was reduced, it was impossible to
fund all programs which had been considered, and no further action was
possible on the one you mention.

With its limited funds for housing demonstrations, our office has concen=
trated on the development of city-wide and neighborhood corporations as
an experiment in new delivery mechanisms for low-cost housing, We have
also encouraged a wide variety of housing services programs through com-
munity action agencies, We would, of course, be happy to discuss any
proposal you might have, either on an informal basis or on the basis of

a formal submission, May I suggest that you contact your local community
action agency or other housing groups to see what your next step might be,

Thank you for your interest in our program.
Sincerely,

tuts btu SAS ef al

Richard S,. Granat
Director
Housing Programs
