Study of CETA Plans and Reservation Economic Development. Final Report.
Fazio, Ernest J., Jr.; Kelly, Patricia F.
A perspective on the state of reservation development is provided in this document, which reports the results of a study conducted among 25 Indian reservations to determine the degree of integration between CETA Indian manpower plans and the Overall Economic Development Plans. An introductory chapter provides a history of the study and identifies broad issues affecting the research, e.g., recent tribal government expansion and population increases on reservations. Research findings, based on field study and analysis of program documents, are reported under three topics: (1) reservation planning in general and reservation manpower planning in particular, (2) the linkages between CETA programs and economic development observed on the 25 study sites, and (3) the constraints to linkages imposed by the administration of the CETA program and the various other federal funding programs that provide support to reservation-based economic development. Nine exemplary program elements are identified; each illustrates feasible ways of integrating CETA and economic development. Study recommendations provide specific suggestions for long-range policy, for improvement in administration of the Indian CETA program, and for further phases of this study. Appendices include a bibliography of 50 entries and a variety of documents used to collect data at the study sites. (JH)
