Ford Foundation Assistance to Puerto Ricans.
Ford Foundation, New York, NY.
This publication is one of a series of reports on activities supported by the Ford Foundation. It deals with the foundation's assistance to Puerto Ricans living on the island and on mainland United States. The report opens with descriptions of the social and economic disadvantagement of Puerto Ricans, then specifies efforts made to expand educational opportunities (both on the island and mainland), preserve Puerto Rican history and culture, attack poverty, and protect the legal rights of mainland Puerto Ricans. The report also includes details of several programs aimed more generally at helping minority groups including Puerto Ricans. The report details the particular funds spent, and achievements in all the above areas. (NG)
