Federal Assistance for Programs Serving the Handicapped. Fourth Edition.
Office of Human Development (DHEW), Washington, DC. Office for Handicapped Individuals.
The directory provides information on approximately 175 programs for the handicapped receiving federal assistance. Descriptions of programs include uses and restrictions, types of assistance available, eligibility requirements, application procedures, appropriations, program accomplishments, enabling legislation, and the information contact. Programs are not listed in any agency order, but rather according to four categories: formula grants to states, project grants, direct payments, and nonfinancial assistance. Indexes include a list of federal departments and agencies represented in the directory, a subject index, and an applicant eligibility index. Appended are a list of resources for funding information, an approximately 40 item annotated bibliography, and a list of addresses of state agencies serving handicapped individuals. (PHR)
