North Carolina Manpower Development Corporation Mobility Project.
North Carolina Manpower Development Corp., Chapel Hill.
The purpose of the project was to determine the feasibility of matching severely rural disadvantaged persons in the mountains and coastal plains with full-time employment in the Piedmont area by means of relocation assistance. Farm families with incomes of $1200 or less, workers discharged for no fault of their own, and workers unemployed for six or more months were eligible to be recruited. Recruiting was done by outreach and house-to-house canvassing. Relocation assistance consisted of counseling, job development, job placement, and housing. Various supportive services were offered such as: information about public health and education services, assistance in money management, assistance in home furnishing. (NTIS)
