Directory of State Title V Rural Development Programs.
McIntyre, Marilyn N.; Madden, J. Patrick
Work plans and questionnaires completed by program leaders supplied information for this directory, which describes 900 projects initiated by the 50 states and Puerto Rico under Title V of the 1972 Rural Development Act; it includes a personnel index and a detailed subject index. The entries, arranged alphabetically by state, include a map of target areas, program overview, federal funding received, project descriptions, and list of program personnel. The program overview describes rather than evaluates the state's overall approach to Title V; it mentions significant features, such as inter-agency or interdisciplinary involvement, refers to target area and project selection, and describes the relationship of individual projects to program objectives. The directory provides a brief description of individual projects; places them in one of six broad categories (community services and/or facilities, income and employment and human resource development, environmental and natural resources, or other); and states whether projects are completed, still active, or terminated before completion. Personnel lists give type and extent of involvement in Title V programs and include addresses and phone numbers of program leaders. (JH)
