Door to Opportunity: Title V, Economic Opportunity Act.
The document is a summary report of the provisions of Title V, Economic Opportunity Act, and the organization and implementation of subsequent programs. The Act was designed to expand the opportunities for constructive work experience and needed training for persons who were unable to support or care for themselves or their families. The document is divided into three parts. The first part covers background information--legislative history, administrative policies, the general nature and distribution of projects, problems encountered, and characteristics of the trainees. The second part discusses the social and economic effects of the programs--measuring the effectiveness and effects. The last part presents the implications of Title V. Four appendices outline the occupations participants were trained for, federal funds approved for Title V projects, Title V research studies, and the principal officials, 1964-69. (PT)
