Guide to Funding New Career Programs.
Gould, Richard J.
The guide is intended to provide information relevant to funding authorizations available to the New Careers promoter. The first section presents principles for an effective funding strategy: (1) expanding the support base by innovative examination of legislation, (2) capitalizing on available funding patterns through understanding the new career model's potential for meeting the eligibility criteria of different grant scorces, (3) exploring the focus of the program so that it qualifies for funds in one or more human service fields, (4) developing alternative unrelated authorization, (5) building the element of time lag into the funding plan to allow for delays resulting from program and funding negotiations, and (6) developing strategies for operation without supplemental funds including provision for transferring freed and underutilized funds. The second section discusses briefly legislation which was pending as the guide was being prepared. (To keep the compilation current, supplementary issues will be published and the entire guide will be revised periodically). The third section is a legislative summary of funding sources. The fourth section presents selected new careers funding patterns in education, health, housing, "multifield," and welfare. (JK)
