Project files are arranged alphabetically by folder title, which typically represents the name of the organization or department seeking assistance or the subject matter under consideration and occasionally by the name of the grant for which the inquirer is seeking help. There are three runs of this order the division of which is based on when the materials were transferred from Mr. Rodino’s office. The years 1969 through 1988 are represented, with the bulk of the material recording 1975 to 1977 and 1982 to 1983.

A major impetus for the creation of the Project Files is correspondence from organization seeking federal funding to further their efforts or from a business to obtain a government contract for services. In many instances, considerable information about the organization or business was provided and stored in these files. Requests are submitted predominantly by not for profit organizations and businesses.

Issues covered in the Project Files includes, but is not limited to: issues raised by not-for-profit organizations in dealing with the government, tax violations, seeking funding, developing educational programs, services and products to promote the greater good, efforts to curb unemployment, services to minorities, closing of plants in the area and loss of jobs/layoffs, affordable housing and rent increases, cultural arts funding, and initiatives for vocational training.

Government agencies with whom Mr. Rodino corresponded to enlist assistance include: on the federal level: Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Labor, Environmental Protection Agency, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Federal Trade Commission, IRS, Small Business Administration, Veteran’s Administration, and the White House Energy Policy and Planning Office; on the state level: the Governor’s Office and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority; and on the city level: Newark Board of Education and Newark Redevelopment and Housing Authority.
