Plan of action for fiscal year 1961

A. Organization.-Departmental order No. 171 (May 8, 1961) established the Area Redevelopment Administration in the Department of Commerce and transferred personnel, property, records, and funds of the Office of Area Development to it. Three major offices were identified in the order : the Office of Area Operations, the Office of Research and Planning, and the Office of Management Services. The functions of these major units have been described in management orders of the Area Redevelopment Administration.

B. Criteria for designation of redevelopment areas.-The legislation provides objective criteria under section 5(a) for making designations but leaves section 5(b) criteria largely up to the discretion of the Secretary of Commerce. Standards must be developed for defining geographical boundaries, for defining areas to be designated under 5(a) as distinguished from 5(b) and for making 5(b) designations. The Administrator has already designated 20 major areas and 94 smaller areas under section 5(a) of the act. Procedures for the designation of additional redevelopment areas have been adopted through negotiations with the Departments of Labor and Agriculture.

C. Loan and grant policies and procedures.-The legislation provides general criteria for commercial, industrial, and public facility loans. These are being further defined with respect to such matters as the conditions for repayment, and the meaning of "reasonable expectation of repayment.” The pu will want quickly information on where and how to apply for loans and the criteria under which they will be reviewed. Drafts of loans and grant policy statements are now in the process of interagency clearance.
