A New Life for the Country. The Report of the President's Task Force on Rural Development.
President's Task Force on Rural Development, Washington, DC.
The President's Task Force on Rural Development (established in September of 1969) reviewed the effectiveness of rural assistance programs and made recommendations as to what might be done in the private and public sectors to stimulate rural development. Included are recommendations for streamlining Federal programs, strengthening state and local participation, and utilizing private enterprise in rural development. Recommendations are also given for financing rural development and for improving nutrition, welfare assistance, health, housing, education, and transportation in rural areas. A discussion of research for a better rural environment concludes this report to President Nixon. (LS)
