Rural Job Creation. Case Studies of CETA Linkage with Economic Development.
Bruno, A. Lee; Wright, L. M., Jr.
This collection contains 20 case studies illustrating some of the contributions Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs have made to economic development and job creation efforts in rural areas. The collection is a companion volume to the monograph entitled "Rural Job Creation--a Study of CETA Linkages with Economic Development" (available separately through ERIC--see note). The studies are arranged in four groups to illustrate the four economic development models described in the monograph: (1) studies illustrating the Income Generation Model, in which CETA provided manpower for production of goods and services; (2) studies demonstrating CETA's provision of materials and resources (the Infrastructure Model); (3) studies showing CETA's role in promoting the local area for new business (the Promotion Model); and (4) studies manifesting CETA's provision of management or technical experience (the Economic Development Intermediary Model). Case studies are of projects conducted in the following cities: Fairfield, North Carolina; Greensboro, Alabama; Salinas, California; Ladysmith, Wisconsin; Epes, Kentucky; Molalla, Oregon; Stearns, Kentucky; Bedford, Pennsylvania; Spring Lake, Utah; Hopkinsville, Kentucky; Selma, Alabama; Moapa, Nevada; Charlevoix, Michigan; Rutland, Vermont; Mt. Union, Pennsylvania; Cambridge, Massachusetts; Schulenburg, Texas; and Gratiot County, Michigan. (MN)
