Community Affairs - State Model Cities Coordinating Unit - Model Cities Program Coordination Files

Identifier: 066-05-018

Scope and Contents

Included are correspondence, reports, newspaper articles, statistical tables and similar papers maintained by the State office that coordinated the Model Cities Program in Georgia. The Model Cities Program was funded as a demonstration grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development under the Demonstration Cities and Metropolitan Development Act of 1966. Its goals were to improve housing, recreational opportunities, health, education, and economic well being of urban areas. There were five such projects in Georgia: Alma-Bacon County, Athens, Atlanta, Gainesville and Savannah. The records document the over-all administration of the Model Cities in Georgia. Annual and quarterly reports as well as copies of the minutes of local Model Cities boards give narrative and statistical measurements of their status, activities and achievements. An incomplete set of yearly "Action Plans" describe community problems and program objectives designed to achieve solutions. Other records reflect the modus operandi of both the State and the local offices. Grant applications and budget summaries show the degree of emphasis placed on projects and programs.
