to appear to the State Relief Commission that the following
essential facts exist, to-wit:
1. That the project presents a practical opportunity to provide
work for unemployed people of the county or subdivision
making the application; and at least ninety per cent (90%) of
the funds for such project will be used for labor.

labor eligible for employment on relief projects.

inequitable portion of the relief funds when compared with the
needs of the whole State and the amount of money available
for relief and work relief purposes.
4. That the project could not be accomplished as a public
work project on account of the demonstrated inability of the
county, municipality, or other political subdivision concerned
to finance its part of the project under the requirements of the
Public Works Administration.
If a county, municipal, or quasi-municipal corporation, or
other political subdivision of the county is allotted funds to be

Section for each project shall be available for the purpose of
procuring materials, tools, equipment and supplies, provided,
however, that nothing herein shall be construed as prohibiting
the use of any funds received from the United States Public
Works administration for the furnishing of materials, tools,
equipment, supplies and/or for other purposes.
