Emergency Resolution to Provide Funds to UCC (Nov. 4, 1964)

Emergency resolution signed by City Council President Ralph Villani, appropriating $15,000 of city funding to enable the United Community Corporation (UCC) to establish a local anti-poverty program. Mayor Addonizio requested the funding to ensure that Newark met the eligibility requirements of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, which authorized the establishment of Community Action Agencies, like the UCC in Newark. — Credit: Junius Williams Papers
