Appalachian Regional Commission, Washington, DC.
During 1970, the Appalachian Regional Development Program completed its 5th year of operations. Authorized under the 1965 Appalachian Regional Development Act, the program tries to cooperatively promote Appalachia's future economic and social development through a phased series of public investments to improve education, health, transportation, housing, community development, and conservation of natural resources. This 1970 annual report discusses Appalachia today, the history of financing of the program, the structure and operation of the Regional Commission, State districts, local districts, and priorities in the region's 4 geographic areas. Goals and strategies are given for urban and rural growth, future employment, and investment objectives. Additionally, health needs and skill development, education, transportation, housing and community development, and environmental and resource projects are discussed. The chapter covering educational programs explains vocational education, educational cooperatives, higher education, and manpower development. The Appendices include population by county, a bibliography of Commission publications, demonstration health programs, vocational education facilities, supplements to Federal Grants-in-Aid, local development districts, and expenditures by State.
