Memorandum for the Director of the Bureau of the Budget

By virtue of the authority vested in me by section 301 of title 3 of the United States Code and section 401 (a) of the Intergovernmental Cooperation Act of 1968 (Public Law 90-577), I hereby delegate to you the authority vested in the President to establish the rules and regulations provided for in that section governing the formulation, evaluation, and review of Federal programs and projects having a significant impact on area and community development, including programs providing Federal assistance to the States and localities, to the end that they shall most effectively serve these basic objectives.

In addition, I expect the Bureau of the Budget to generally coordinate the actions of the departments and agencies in exercising the new authorizations provided by the Intergovernmental Cooperation Act, with the objective of consistent and uniform action by the Federal Government.

This memorandum shall be published in the Federal Register.
