23 cities

I used to work for the Ohio State University Extension program in Cuyahoga Co. 
which is Cleveland.  Cleveland/Extension was part of the second wave of the 
cities to receive funding for urban gardening in the mid-70's.  My 
understanding was that several years back, the funding was not cut but was 
redistributed.  At least in Ohio that is what happened.  So, the money was 
spread around to other Extension urban gardening programs in the state which 
has helped foster new programs.  There is an article called Final Harvest 
which reports on the original bill and what has happened more recently with 
that.  The original mission was really to help supplement the food budget of 
low-income individuals.  The article talks about the original bill and how it 
was sponsored by a rural congressman who was hoping to increase understanding 
between the urban population and farmers.  There is a link to Cleveland's 
urban gardening web page, called Seeds of Hope, from the ACGA web page.
