Abstract:Passage of the 1974 Housing and Community Development Act presaged a minor revolution in intergovernmental relations for the cities of Illinois. Under the new Community Development Block Grant program, Title I of the act. many Illinois communities received their first substantial federal assistance for urban development and revitalization while other cities saw massive increases in their federal aid receipts. The 1974 housing and community development legislation also heralded a new era of reduced federal red tape and involvement with an increased scope of local choice and decision making The Community Development Block Grant program is now in its fifth year, following one major legislative revision in 1977, and communities have accumulated a large stock of benefits and experience under this new federal arrangement. This study, based on an analysis of some fifteen medium and large size cities in Illinois, documents the development and impact of the community development program, and the response of Illinois cities to this effort.
