"It is the policy of the Federal Highway Administration that displaced persons shall receive fair and humane treatment, and shall not suffer unnecessarily as a result of highway programs designed for the benefit of the public as a whole. The Uniform Relocation Act represents the most humane and just legislation on relocation assistance ever enacted by the Federal Government."
