This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "The Housing and Community Development Act of 1974: The Small Community."

The October issue of the Review summarized the major community development provisions of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, which was signed into law by President Ford August 22, 1974. This article supplements that earlier Review Article by providing information on the funds expected to be available under the Act for community development in cities and towns under 50,000 population and non-urban counties which may not have participated in community development programs previously. It also describes application procedures and requirements, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development's proposed criteria for evaluating applications from such jurisdictions.
