REPORT ON A REVIEW OF FEDERAL POLICY IN GRANT, LOAN AND CONSTRUCTION PROGRAMS IN AREAS OF HIGH RISK OF NATURAL DISASTER DAMAGE,
PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION SERVICE CHICAGO ILL
Pagination or Media Count:
The review is directed to problems of federal policy governing programs, primarily of a developmental nature, in areas of high risk of floods, hurricanes, or earthquakes. The original recommendation clearly implied that such policy is remiss in its failure to use the powerful influence of federal loans, grants, and direct construction to avoid placing at risk additional property and more lives in such areas. The review reveals that there is room for improvement in this respect, but also that federal officials in most programs have made some progress toward the objective.
