How Communities Finance Programs for Pregnant School-Age Girls. Information Series #2.
Holmes, Myra; Howard, Marion
This pamphlet is based on data from individual program reports, unpublished materials and correspondence, personal communications, site visits, a 1968 survey of programs for pregnant school-age girls, and a 1970 study of group infant care programs associated with programs for pregnant students. Since very few communities know the dollar cost of their programs for pregnant students, the authors concentrate on sources and types of funding rather than on dollar amounts needed for programs. Where possible, however, information on dollar amounts is provided. The report is organized into: (1) perspectives on funding; (2) program organization; (3) various types of direct funding -- including involvement at Federal, State, and local levels -- general observations on the sources of direct funds, and sources of indirect funds; and (4) trends in funding. Included are sample budgets of a few selected programs and lists of funding sources as noted by a variety of programs. Related documents are EA 004 728, EA 004 729, EA 004 731, and EA 004 732.
