State Appalachian Development Plans and Investment Programs for Fiscal Year 1979. Abstracts.
One component of the Appalachian Regional Commission's regional plan process is the annual review and approval of individual state development policies. The state summaries of proposed programs for fiscal year 1979 (for Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia) include an analysis of economic and social conditions giving population trends, employment rates, and per capita income; an assessment of the region's needs and potentials; a statement of goals, objectives, and priorities for the region; and an abstract of the investment program. Each investment program identifies and describes the projects and programs which will be eligible for funding by the Commission and their costs. Projects fall into the following categories: child development, community development and housing, education and vocational training, energy and natural resources, enterprise development, health, industrial parks, sewer and water systems, small farm demonstration, and research and development. Allocations requested from the Commission to fund the programs range from North Carolina's $9,800,000 to Pennsylvania's $26,900,000. (NEC)
