WHEREAS, money was not available for the Office and the full benefit of the
experience, talent, and status of the UUA to seek sources of funding outside the
denominational budget was urged by the General Assembly and in its resolution;
WHEREAS, a $600,000 grant of which $300,000 is in unrestricted program funds
has since come to the denomination above the basic budget approved by the 1973
General Assembly and yet the Office has not been included in the items approved
for funding from that grant;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the UUA Board be urged to include in the
Grants Section of the 1974-1975 UUA Budget an item for $38,500 to establish the
Office of Gay Concerns, such funds to take precedence over two items presently
listed in the Grants Section: $24,000 from the Research Program and $14,500 from
the Publicity and Television/Radio item; and
FURTHER RESOLVED: That such Office be established in accordance with the
proposal developed by the UUA Board and Administration in consultation with the
UUA Gay Caucus' Advisory Committee and as revised by the UUA Board at its
meeting on June 24, 1974.
