Providing Services to the Minority Elderly: New Programs, Old Problems. Executive Summary.
Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC.
This report is a response to a congressional mandate to study racial and ethnic discrimination in federally-assisted programs for older persons. The two-phase study includes a case study analysis of selected cities to assess whether minorities are employed in federal programs for older persons and the extent to which older minorities receive services provided by these programs. The materials provide a demographic profile and historical discussion of the Area Agency on Aging program. Minority representation on the staff and among contractors and subcontractors is discussed. Program characteristics that appear to facilitate or impede minority participation are described. Results of the investigation are summarized by city. (JAC)
