United Israel Appeal Agencies Report Substantial Lag in Funds

Download PDF for this date

Expenditures of United Israel Appeal agencies for their immigrant rehabilitation and resettlement program are almost one-third–or about $22,000,000–behind the budgetary needs for the first eight months of this year, Rudolf G. Sonneborn, UIA national chairman, said here today.

“This lag has been one of the primary causes in the slowing down of immigrant resettlement, in the protein-poor diet for newcomers and in the curtailment of housing projects,” Mr. Sonneborn said. He disclosed these facts in a report to the executive committee.
