Until federal regional councils were established to coordinate programs for assistance to state and local governments, each federal agency charged with field operations designed its own regional structure and paid little attention to other agencies dealing with similar problems. The Federal Assistance Review program was established to simplify and make more understandable the various federal systems for administering grants in aid and other assistance to state and local governments. Under this program, 10 standard regions were established, administrative headquarters were located in designated cities within these regions, and federal regional councils were established in each region. Some of the problems encountered in establishment of the councils and how these councils relate to transportation are discussed.
