Results of questionnaire returns from 920 project directors provide the data for discussion of present project problems, primary factors in approving new projects, attitudes of project directors toward transition to state control and toward federal support, problems and transition, and present evaluation. Part 3,"The Future," focuses on future needs, as expressed by project directors. The final section presents 17 recommendations for strengthening and improving PACE at the federal, state, and local levels. (JS)
