WHEREAS, there has been a growing need at all levels of government for better methods of sharing information related to developmental goals and objectives in general, and in matters pertaining to federal, state and private financial aid programs in particular;
Local revenue sources can be significantly augmented through planned and coordinated use of these funds;
Proposals for federal and state financial aids and assistance can be strengthened through improved information sharing and joint participation techniques at all levels of government;
Such sharing and participation can best be implemented by local governmental review of project proposals through utilization of the district development system promulgated by Executive Order of the Governor of August 6, 1969;
Such review and coordination are required for continued qualification for a number of important federal aid programs.
It is therefore ordered that the following district clearinghouses are designated to disseminate information at all levels of government and to provide the review procedures required under the Federal Intergovernmental Cooperation Act of 1968 and the subsequent Bureau of Budget Circular A-95:
