1980 Federal Funding Guide for Elementary and Secondary Education.
Education Funding Research Council, Washington, DC.
This guide is intended for those interested in applying for federal assistance for elementary or secondary education programs. It describes 91 programs mandated by Congress, with information on eligibility, restrictions, and awards. This 1980 edition contains material that is all new or updated since the last edition. Some of the new features include articles on the A-95 clearinghouse procedure (a clearance procedure to avert duplication and conflicts in community development programs), information on private foundations, a new section on what grant reviewers look for in an application, and the fiscal year 1980 allocations for the Title I basic and concentration grants, Title IV programs, and handicapped programs. The guide is divided into the following sections: tips for the federal aid coordinator, an overview of the Department of Education, and descriptions of federal aid programs. The programs described include special education, vocational education, bilingual education, nutrition and food service, and Indian education. A feature new with this edition is the "Quick Check" that offers brief information allowing readers to tell at a glance if a particular program would fulfill their needs. (Author/JM)
