This document presents the record of a hearing on the reauthorization of the Demonstration Partnership Program (DPP), part of the Community Services Block Grant Act. The program offers community action agencies the opportunity to test new methods for reducing dependency and fostering self-sufficiency among the poor. Six agency representatives testified in support of the program and described the following programs funded under the legislation: (1) Lincoln (Nebraska) Action Program, testing whether families needing emergency food are at high risk for becoming homeless, and whether case management will be effective in preventing homelessness and addressing families' poverty and dependency; (2) Vermont DPP, testing a partnership between a state small business loan program and five community action agencies' small business technical assistance program; (3) Allegheny County Training Consortium (ATCC)/ACCORD Corporation, testing a small business development program; (4) Central Vermont Community Action Council, testing a technical assistance program for new small businesses; (5) ABCD Downtown Center for Jobs, Education, and Career Training (Boston), testing a long-term individualized job training program; and (6) Career and Current Life United in Boston (CLUB), testing counseling and mentoring services. Statistical data are included on four tables and one graph. Nine prepared statements, letters, and supplemental materials are appended. (FMW)
