Volume III, Section B of a six-volume final report (which covers the findings of a research project on policy and technology related to rehabilitation of disabled individuals) presents four papers which examine important rehabilitation-oriented issues. In the first paper, "Transportation Problems of Persons with Disabilities--The Federal Response" by E. Ross, issues such as the scope and nature of transportation problems, existing federal financial resources and requirements, and Department of Transportation supported research are considered. K. Mallik, in a paper titled "Transportation Model--Benefit-Cost for Elderly and Handicapped Persons," reviews problems specific to the handicapped and aged, types of available transportation models, costs of operation, and benefits derived from the transportation system. "The Department of Housing and Urban Development--Influence and Impact on Supporting Alternative Community Based Living Arrangements for Persons with Disabilities" is the focus of a paper by E. Ross. A final paper by C. Spanhel and C. Sigelman examines "Housing and Residential Programing for the Handicapped" in terms of numbers of handicapped persons in need of housing and residential programing, major dimensions of the problems (including architectural barriers) and their solutions, specific models (including halfway houses) and their statuses, and costs of specific models.
