WHEREAS after several years of applying the income from the sale of JAFI- and UIA-owned public housing and other Capital assets solely for the limited purposes described above, the amounts required each year for debt retirement are substantially lower than the income received from the sale of JAFI- and UIA-owned public housing and other Capital assets.
