Jobs for America. Annual Report Fiscal 1970.
Economic Development Administration (DOC), Washington, DC.
During fiscal year 1970, over 800 projects were approved by the Economic Development Administration (EDA) to help create employment opportunities for jobless and underemployed Americans. EDA activities included public works, business loans, technical assistance, and support for local and regional planning programs. Establishment of multi-state regional EDA headquarters has brought the programs closer to the people. Although decentralization is most advanced in the public works branch, the technical assistance and planning activities have been affected as well. (BH)
