NOTES

1. "Over-all for new housing" is the cost of new housing. It consists of all costs of a development except the cost of slum buildings to be torn down, cost of land for future devel-
opment, and the local housing authority's administrative, carrying, and contingent expenses applicable to these excepted items. In the over-all cost of new housing, the following
items involved in some developments are not included since they are not properly chargeable to the cost of new housing: (a) The cost of slum buildings to be torn down on the
development site which represents an expenditure not for new housing for slum dwellers, but for slum clearance; and (b) the cost of land for future development which represents
an expenditure not for land for present new housing, but for land which will later be used for and charged to additional housing. The exclusion of these two items for statistical
purposes makes possible fair comparisons between costs of housing in U. S. Housing Authority-aided developments and cost of housing undertaken by private enterprise when land
costs are included.

2. "Dwelling facilities" is the total of the construction cost of dwellings (referred to in note 3 as “Net construction”), dwelling equipment (such as ranges, refrigerators, screens,
etc.) and the local housing authority's architectural, administrative, carrying, and contingent expenses applicable to dwelling construction and dwelling equipment. The amount
shown includes allowances for changes and extras. The applicable statutory limitations to dwelling facilities cost (sec. 15 (5), United States Housing Act of 1937, as amended) are
$4,000 per dwelling unit and $1,000 per room for cities with populations of 500,000 or less; for cities with populations of over 500,000 the statutory limitations are $5,000 per dwelling
unit and $1,250 per room.

3. "Net construction" is the construction cost of dwellings—i. e., structural, plumbing, heating, and electrical costs. The amounts shown do not include any allowances for
changes and extras. The items contained in the "Net construction cost'' most nearly comprise the items contained in residential construction costs as compiled by the Bureau of
Labor Statistics on the basis of building-permit data.

4. "Acquisition of site” consists of all costs that are chargeable to the procurement of a site for the development of a housing project. These include land for present develop-
ment, acquisition expense, and, if any, land for future development, cost of slum buildings to be torn down, relocation of tenants, and demolition.

5. “Site improvement" consists of the cost of rough grading of land, excess excavation and foundation costs in connection with buildings, utilities, or other site improvements
where the usual character of the subsoil or topsoil of the site is such as to require piling, caissons, underpinning, removal of solid rock or very unusual depth of footings; streets, alleys,
and sidewalks or public rights-of-way transversing, adjoining, or leading to the project site; utility mains, including storm and sanitary sewers; water, gas, and electricity, street light-
ing, fire and police alarm systems; driveways, parking areas and walks on project property; playgrounds and similar surfaced areas; fences; clothes poles; landscape costs and miscel-
laneous improvements.

6. “Nondwelling" is the cost of nondwelling buildings, spaces, and equipment. These consist of such items as community buildings or spaces for use of the occupants of a proj.
ect, for example, buildings or spaces for health, education, and recreation; administrative buildings or spaces; project service and storage space; electricity generating plants; spaces
for mechanical installations; outdoor playground equipment or spaces; indoor community spaces; and maintenance and administrative equipment.

7. "Dwelling buildings and equipment" consists of the cost of "Net construction" (defined in 3 above) and the cost of dwelling equipment which includes ranges, portable space
heaters, refrigerators, movable cabinets or cupboards, screens, window shades, movable laundry equipment, and other movable dwelling equipment.

8. "Preoccupancy" consists of the direct cost of selection of initial tenants and deficits in operating revenues (otherwise referred to as operating capital) up to a date 1 year after
the project is ready for complete occupancy.

9. Architects and engineering" consists of fees fixed by contract for architectural and engineering services, including fees for engineers and landscape architects, other professional
fees for consultants and similar advisers, cost of the clerk of the works, inspectors, and other costs of inspection paid by the local authority. It also consists of sundry costs, such as
travel in connection with architectural and engineering services, borings and test pits, blueprinting not otherwise furnished under the fixed-fee contracts and models.

10. “Administrative, carrying charges, contingencies” consists of the administrative costs of the local housing authority directly traceable to the project; the portion of those
general overhead and statistical survey expenses properly allocable to the project; interest on funds for development costs borrowed from the U. S. Housing Authority or from other
sources up to the date of physical completion of the project or up to any earlier date which marks the beginning of the period for which annual contributions are paid by the U.S.
Housing Authority; and that amount allowed for changes and extras.

FUNDS ADVANCED TO AND BORROWINGS OF LOCAL AUTHORITIES

Mr. WIGGLESWORTH. Also the table appearing on page 405 showing "Funds advanced by United States Housing Authority to local authorities and borrowings by local authorities from other sources for United States Housing Authority-aided projects.” I should appreciate it if you would bring that up to date also.

Mr. KEYSERLING. We will put that in the record.

Funds advanced by U. S. Housing Authority to local authorities and borrowings by

local authorities from other sources for U. S. Housing Authority-aided projects, as of Dec. 31, 1941
