Migrant Programs in Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma.
Vega, Jaime I., Ed.; And Others
Part of the"Comprehensive National Survey of Migrant Programs" series, this directory was prepared for use by agencies working with migrant and seasonal farmworkers in the midwestern states of Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma. Programs, services, and resources providing educational, health, legal, and job placement services to migrant farmworkers during their stay in these states are listed. Data were obtained from Federal, state, and local agencies in the various states. Special emphasis was placed on information and data current as of summer 1973. Information given for each state pertains to: (1) programs, (2) crops and work periods, (3) migrant population and wages by county, (4) labor camps, and (5) supplementary data, i.e., information sources and graphic data. The listings of organizations, programs, or agencies may contain some obsolete information due to their: instability; being subject to change as new needs, priorities, and objectives appear; or as operating funds expire. An annotated bibliography of National Migrant Information Clearinghouse publications is appended. (NQ)
