Abstract:

The Energy Impacted Area Development Assistance Program was established by section 601 of the Powerplant and Industrial Fuel Use Act of 1978 P.L. 95-620, November 9, 1978. The objective of the program is to help areas impacted by coal or uranium production, processing, or transportation. The program is funded through DOE and administered by the Farmers Home Administration of the Department of Agriculture. It provides grants for both the development of growth management and housing plans and the development and acquisition of sites for housing and public facilities. For fiscal years 1979 and 1980, 61 million was allocated to a total of 23 States. Ten percent of that amount, about 6 million, was for planning grants and the remainder, about 55 million, was for site acquisition and development. The types of projects currently being financed under the program include site acquisition for a housing project for the elderly, site development for a water storage facility, water and sewer lines for a housing project, and site acquisition and development for a health complex.
