The Joint Distribution Committee will provide $1, 700, 000 during 1960 for the vocational training programs of ORT, the Organization for Rehabilitation Through Training, under an agreement signed here by officials of both organizations.

ORT will expend over $6, 150, 000 for all its 1960 programs in 19 countries. Under terms of the agreement reached between the two agencies, ORT will make up from other sources the difference between the JDC grant and the total required.
