Community Action Programs: An Annotated Bibliography. Exchange Bibliography No. 277.
Brown, Ruth E.
Although the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 (EOA) created other programs, the most controversial one, and the one with which the antipoverty program came to be identified, was the Community Action Program (CAP). This bibliography covers materials about the formation and operation of Community Action Agencies themselves, usually involving such matters as participation of the poor, characteristics and activities of board members, and the impact of CAP on the community. It does not include studies of specific substantive programs such as Headstart, Family Planning, or Legal Services, or of business management or evaluation procedures themselves. It offers fairly complete coverage of the mass circulation magazines, academic journals, government documents, and contracted research reports. Most of the listings include a brief summary of procedures and conclusions. (Author/MLF)
