This corporation ser- 'ves Emmet, Kossuth, Palo Alto and Pocahontas counties.

Hart told the Board eight pro- fjects that were submitted in May Mrtll have to come from 1967 fiscal funds and the funding for 51967 is uncertain. Because of uncertainty of funds, projects to be funded will be based on priority needs of the four-county area, and must pass rigid examination in complying with Federal guidelines. ,; John Mackey, the new director of OEO for Iowa, warned the /directors that he will insist on 'more involvement of CAP laymen, members of the local anti- •ppverty policy boards.
