Workbook: Community Action Program, Office of Economic Opportunity.
Office of Economic Opportunity, Washington, DC.
The Community Action Program Workbook has been prepared as an aid to the many people now involved in establishing community action programs to combat poverty. It is designed to stimulate thinking rather than to prescribe given courses of action. Although it has many audiences, the workbook is intended principally for the local community groups who plan and develop programs and for the staff members of the OEO Community Action Program who analyze proposals and prepare resource grants. The workbook contains 10 parts, each dealing with a major aspect of the community action program. Most of the workbook parts are divided into chapters on given program activities, such as urban employment. These chapters in turn are subdivided into the following sections: Introduction--This section contains a brief survey of the history and general nature of the subject. Framework for Analysis--This section presents the basic purpose, policy, standards, guidelines, and suggestions for component elements of community action programs. Program Models and Examples--These are included to further assist workbook users by making available in convenient form the experience of others, and by describing program components in specific, concrete terms. The format of the workbook is a revisable, loose-leaf manual, designed for filing in a standard three-ring binder. (Author/JM)
