Title V in South Carolina -- An Update.
Jacob, Nelson L.
Since South Carolina's Title V Community and Resource Development (CRD) project is limited to one small rural county (Williamsburg) affording careful documentation, this paper explicates South Carolina's CRD process via a social action model. This project, then, is described in terms of the following model components: (1) community initiative (derived from several resource agencies rather than the community itself); (2) community analysis (information collection involving an organizational survey to identify community organizational perceptions and a problem identification and leadership survey); (3) community forum (a county-wide meeting comprised of all interviewees and additional local and state officials to discuss survey results and the role of Clemson University's Extension Service); (4) community organization and planning (organization of a 17-member CRD program committee composed primarily of a racial/sexual cross-section of persons from the entire county; survey verifications using Committee member responses; committee meetings wherein the CRD Committee opted to focus on expanded educational efforts, recreation, water/sewer facilities, and housing); (5) resource mobilization (followup sessions to involve others in problem areas); (6) implementation (meetings to inform the public and stimulate citizen participation); (7) evaluation (utilization of each previous model component).
