February 26, 1969

Mr. Collier Gladin
Director of Planning
City of Atlanta

700 City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Collier;
Re: Your letter to John T. Edmunds of February 25, 1969

This is to request that you transfer the $8, 615 remaining in Amendatory
Application #2 of the Community Improvement Program to the Atlanta
Children and Youth Services Council.

it was the intent of the President's Council on Youth Opportunity that
the CRP in HUD be used simply as a conduit to provide funds to city
youth agencies for summer planning and programming. There was no
intent to require local CRP (CIP) agencies to justify the uee of these
funds as a part of the normal CRP program activities. This is also
the understanding of John Edmunds.

I see no reason why we should not transfer the remaining funds from the
1968 approval to the Youth Council immediately so they will be able to
continue their present activities without interruption.

Mr. Edmunds has informed me that the $30, 000 for 1969 YOP activities
has been set aside by HUD in Washington for Atlanta's use. He will let
us know shortly if your letter can serve as the 1969 application.

Sincerely yours,

Dan Sweat

Alderman Rodney Cook
Mr. John Cox
Mr. Charles Davis
Mr. Earl Landers
