(S. 1361)

AN ACT To amend the United States Housing Act of 1937 so as to permit loans, capital

grants, or annual contributions for low-rent-housing and slum-clearance projects where construction costs exceed present cost limitations upon condition that local housing agencies pay the difference between cost limitations and the actual construction costs.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That section 15 of the United States Housing Act of 1937 is amended by adding at the end thereof the following new subsection:

“(6) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (5) of this section, or of any other section of this Act, the Authority is authorized to make capital grants, loans, or annual contributions for low-renthousing or slum-clearance projects, in the full amount of any sums previously allocated pursuant to this Act, to any public housing agency, at the request of such agency, upon condition that such agency will pay, or cause to be paid by the State or political subdivision, such proportion of the total development cost of the project as the amount of the average actual cost per family dwelling unit of the items covered by the applicable cost limitations prescribed in subsection (5) of this

section in excess thereof bears to such average actual cost: Provided, That the amount of any such payment shall be excluded from the base on which the maximum amount of any capital grants, loans, or annual contributions authorized by this Act are calculated. The receipt of capital grants, loans, or annual contributions by any, public-housing agency pursuant to this subsection shall in no way prejudice or impair the rights or privileges of such agency to participate fully in other low-rent-housing or slum-clearance projects under this Act or any other law. Nothing in this subsection shall prejudice the right of those public housing agencies which can, by reason of lesser need, or would prefer to delay the starting of their proposed building operations until labor and material costs stabilize at levels consistent with the cost limitations prescribed in subsection (5) of this section."

Sec. 2. The United States or any State or local public agency assisted by Federal funds made available with respect to housing shall continue to have the right to maintain an action or proceeding to recover possession of any housing accommodations (except as provided in the proviso of section 209(b) of the Housing and Rent Act of 1947) operated by it where such action or proceeding is authorized by the statute or regulations under which such accommodations are administered, but no such action or proceeding shall be maintained prior to March 1, 1948, if in the opinion of the administering authority such action or proceeding would result in undue hardship for the occupants of such housing accommodations, or unless in the opinion of such authority other housing facilities are available for such occupants.
