SUMMER YOUTH TRANSPORTATION PROJECT: A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT

FEDERAL FUNDS WERE DISTRIBUTED BY THE NATIONAL LEAGUE OF CITIES AND U. S. CONFERENCE OF MAYORS TO CITY-APPLICANTS FOR TRANSPORTATION IN SUMMER YOUTH PROGRAMS. FUNDS WERE DISBURSED ON A MATCHING BASIS IN WHICH 25% OF TRANSPORTATION COSTS WERE ASSUMED BY THE RECIPIENT, 75% BY THE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT SPONSORS. ALTHOUGH EMPHASIS WAS PLACED ON EMPLOYMENT-RELATED SUMMER PROGRAMS, THE BULK OF THE FUNDS WAS SPENT FOR EDUCATIONAL, CULTURAL, AND RECREATIONAL PURPOSES. THE REPORT IS A COMPILATION OF DATA CONCERNING THE USE OF THE FUNDS (AS SUPPLIED BY THE GRANTEES) AND AN ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACT OF THE FUNDS. DETAILED ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO PROJECT DEVELOPMENT, CITY RESPONSES, LOCAL PLANNING, AND PROJECT ADMINISTRATION AND OPERATION. APPENDICES DOCUMENT STATISTICAL DATA ABOUT GRANTEES AND PROGRAMS FOR WHICH THE FUNDS WERE USED. /UMTA/
