Within the definition of "project" in Section 17 and the
powers granted to Housing Authorities by this Act and "An Act to
facilitate the development and construction of housing, to provide
governmental assistance therefor, and to repeal an Act herein named,"
approved July 2, 1947, as amended, Housing Authorities may enter into
agreements or otherwise cooperate with any authorized agency of the
federal government in aid of the development of housing for aged persons
in need of and unable to secure decent, safe and sanitary housing and
who qualify by federal law and regulations for low rent or other housing
facilities, the construction or financing of which is to be assisted in
whole or in part by federal funds.
The Department may undertake studies to
determine the desirability of extending by legislation the powers of
Housing Authorities to assist private construction and development of
nursing and convalescent homes for aged or other persons in need of
medical or nursing services or care.
