State Appalachian Development Plans and Investment Programs for Fiscal Year 1980. ABSTRACTS.
Appalachian Regional Commission, Washington, DC.
The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), established by Congress in 1965 as a means of relieving the chronic economic and social distresses of the Appalachian region, is composed of the governors of the 13 states that comprise Appalachia. Local development plans, based upon needs and priorities, are presented to ARC every year by the governor of each state. Abstracts of each state's development plan are presented in terms of objectives, needs and priorities, and investment programs for fiscal year 1980. Community Development, primarily in the areas of water and sewer systems, is named as the top priority objective by 11 of the 13 states involved. Health Care and Housing are listed by nearly half of the states as the next most important areas of concern. Child Development, Education, and Enterprise Development are equally weighted as the third most important goal named. (CM)
