Manpower Implications of New Legislation and New Federal Programs. Priorities for Research in Anticipating the State-Local Government Employment Resulting from the Federal Grants-in-Aid System.
Lecht, Leonard A.
This study focused on estimates of employment in state and local governments arising from federal grants-in-aid, in order to appraise research priorities on the role of federal grant policies and programs in increasing public employment in other units of government. Employment generated by federal grants-in-aid to state and local governments is estimated for fiscal year 1969 and projected for 1975. Seven research priorities were recommended as prerequisites for developing a manpower planning system to anticipate the job-creating effects of grants-in-aid. Other aspects of the manpower implications of new legislation and new federal programs studied under this project were: (1) The impact of the proposed Family Assistance Plan on State Employment Services, (2) Manpower needs in state and local public safety activities, and (3) Using persons with engineering backgrounds in health-related industries.
