The program goes Nice this: A city hfcs a bad shim. It wants Ui jet rid of it, Jt gets permission from its .state legislature to do so and It ReL*> a small loan from the government to survey the whole problem. Mu«t RaTf OM RuMdlnjts This includes public hearings where people with an interest in aeetnic I he slum stay or go can speak their piece. Suppose, then, the city decides to go ahead and tear down the slum. ThU Is where money, maybe big money, cornea In. Buying tip the slum property and tearing down the rotten build- Ings may take a lot of money. more than the city can spare, even though the city gets some of it back later by selling the leveled off land. The government steps in. It's willing to stand two-thirds of any loss on the deal. The city must agree to hear the other one-third of any loss. The government is willing to lose up to $500,000,000 on slum clearance to get these blights mil of the way and their tenants moved Into better, low-rent homes. So, for slum-cler ranee, in the next five years the government is prepared to hand out $l.500.f>00.000 to cities In loans and grants, this wayt 1. Loan 5—, This money all has to be paid back by the cities at 2!£ to 3 per cent Interest. Tut they get 40 years to do it. *SM,M*.M» In Grant* •' 3. Grants—»500,000.000. These {grant* are really glfU which the citie* never have to pay back. Stnce the loans have to b« paid bark, but the grants don't, the most the government figures to lose on all alum-clearance la $500,000,000 In ffrantfl. But—and thin in important for JoriM and hi* neighbors In the alums—the government will relocated, in housing at not worse than (hey left and at rent within their means. And people forced out if a slum, secause the city is tearing It down, will get first crack at a new, low- rent public housing unit, provided they're otherwise eligible. That is one of the rea-ons why lot of cities, before starting slum- clearance, probably will build public housing, also with government help. The government's eivi of the deal—checking, Investigating;, and deciding what city gets how much money and for what—will be handled by the Public Homing Administration, a government agency.
