Braude, Kathryn, Comp.; And Others
This booklet lists approximately 600 arts-related projects and activities which were funded by the approximately 150 separate funding programs in the U.S. Department of Education in 1979. A total appropriation figure of approximately $30 million is presented. The list includes funding for projects that focus on arts education specifically (ESEA-Title IV-C, the Arts Education Program, the Institute of Museum Studies), use the arts as vehicles or tools to help achieve broad educational goals (compensatory education, desegregation, basic skills, community education), and/or include the arts as a component part of a larger program (teacher inservice or curriculum improvement in a variety of educational areas). Entries are presented in 34 categories including adult education, arts education, bilingual education, career education, citizen education for cultural understanding, college work-study, cooperative education, desegregation assistance, ethnic heritage studies, gifted and talented, public library services, and teacher exchange. For each entry, information is presented on the name and address of the project developer, the title of the project, a brief project description, the total dollar amount of funding, and the reference number in the Catalogue of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA).
