Transcript REVENUE SHARING—HOUSTON Merylyn S, Whited, administrative aide in Leonel Castillo's office, spoke to the HCWPC policy council meeting on July 17 about the Houston Revenue Sharing Coalition, of which the caucus is a member. The coalition, which was formed in October 1973» comprises a number of individuals and organizations who are working to get revenue sharing funds allocated for human care needs, rather than simply for capital expenses. The revenue sharing budget for the 4th entitlement period (July 1973-June 30, 1974) recently passed by City Council marked some progress in this endeavor: the budget allocated $1.8 million for the construction of multi-functional neighborhood service centers, to be staffed by public and private agencies, following the pattern of two Model Cities centers already being constructed. This represents an improvement, xn the area of revenue sharing money and human needs, over the record of the last administration, but unfortunately the money allocated will cover only construction, not staffing or running expenses. The HRSC, Ms. Whited said, hopes to encourage the city to construct some mechanism for citizen input into the decisions on where these centers will be built, and what services and personnel will go into them. Ms. Whited told the policy council that no other Houston group seems to be monitoring the allocation of the funds with these priorities in mind. Houston will receive $16 million in revenue sharing monies* during the 5th entitlement period, which began July 1. The Houston Revenue Sharing Coalition will meet sometime in early August, but a date has not yet been set. All caucus members who are interested In working with the coalition can contact Merylyn Whited at 222-4435 (bus.) or 723-8462. REVENUE SHARING—TEXAS Texas United Community Services, an agency funded by the United Fund, has scheduled a statewide meeting on Sept. 24 to discuss revenue sharing and its appropriation for support of social services. The meeting will take place In the Old Supreme Court Room at the Capitol, Austin; tentative time is- between 10 am and 3 pm. People presently involved in revenue sharing will attend to answer questions about how the money is being spent. No state-wide monitoring of how Texas spends its approximately $300 million in revenue sharing monies is presently being done, so it's especially important for all persons—and more especially feminists with projects in mind—interested in revenue sharing expenditure to participate in this effort. The coordinator of the State Conference on Uses and Allocation of General Revenue Sharing Funds, Jim Wimberley of TUCS, wants the names of everyone who will attend the statewide meeting in Austin, in order to make arrangements for attendance. If you want to go, contact Meryiyn Whited at 222-4435 (bus.) or 7?3-8462; she will pass on the names of those planning to attend the meeting to the coordinator.
