Exemplary Project Handbook: Participating in Economic Development. CETA and Reservation Economic Development.
Fazio, Ernest J., Jr.; And Others
Developed to assist Native American reservation program planners, this handbook highlights a number of exemplary uses of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) funds in reservation economic development, presents a discussion of the problems reservations may face in meeting the new funding directions of the federal government, and suggests some ways in which CETA grantees can deal with those problems and participate in economic development in the 1980's. The first chapter describes several successful ways in which CETA funds have been used to support reservation economic development. The second chapter provides a comprehensive account of two excellent examples of CETA participation in economic development, the activities of the Moapa Band of Southern Paiutes of Nevada and their CETA consortium grantee (the Intertribal Council of Nevada) and the activities of the Manpower Division of the Tlingit-Haida Community Council. Chapter three focuses on suggestions to meet the challenges of the 1980's, e.g. hire a planner, institute a planning process, coordinate and cooperate with other tribal departments, become better informed, form a private industry council to compete for Title VII funds, and involve the community.
