Appalachian Regional Commission: 1980 Annual Report.
Appalachian Regional Commission, Washington, DC.
Narrative text, tables, maps, and photographs present an overview of the Appalachian Regional Commission's (ARC) activities in fiscal year 1980, past achievements, and future goals. Major accomplishments of 1980 include: allocation of almost $13 million for 1,023 nonhighway projects; completion or construction of almost 60% of the Appalachian Development Highway System; sponsorship of a regional energy conference on the increased use and production of coals; and Appalachian governors voting to allocate priority funding for projects in the areas of greatest need (infant mortality, basic education skills, energy, and housing). Part I highlights regional history, ARC structure, and achievements over the past 16 years in transportation, enterprise development, health, education, child development, housing, community development, energy, environment, natural resources, and finances. Part II examines fiscal 1980 and presents maps, county population change data, program categories, amounts, and sources of funding for each of the 13 Appalachian states. A directory provides local development district addresses. (NEC)
