Exemplary Project Handbook: Planning for Economic Development. CETA & Reservation Economic Development.
Kelly, Patricia; And Others
A number of exemplary planning mechanisms and systems implemented by Native American Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) grantees to achieve coordination of resources for reservation economic development are highlighted in this handbook on integrated planning. Also included is an examination of the problems caused by the failure to plan and integrate development resources, especially CETA, and of the benefits to be gained when tribes set up some type of planning system. The experiences of three exemplary planning efforts (by the Spokane tribes, Fort Peck tribes, and Pima and Maricopa tribes), ranging from the simple to the more complex, are presented together with some suggested approaches to planning and resource coordination. The suggestions presented on how to improve the use of CETA to support tribal economic development focus on two types of activities: developing a CETA planning capacity and creating linkages between CETA and other economic development bodies, both on and off-reservation. It is emphasized that these suggestions must start with a commitment to planning and its coordination. The information presented should prove useful to reservation consortium planners, CETA staff, and tribal administrators interested in a better use of their development resources. (AN)
