The Committee on Education and Labor of the House of Representatives is
gathering information on the operation and effectiveness of various programs
to reduce unemployment and poverty. The Committee will be concerned with the
continuation of the Economic Opportunity Act and the programs included in that
Act such as the Neighborhood Youth Corps, the Concentrated Employment Program
(CEP), Job Opportunities in the Business Sector (JOBS), Operation Mainstream,
New Careers, Community Action, the Job Corps, and Headstart.
As Chairman of the Committee on Education and Labor, I would like to know
whether these programs are accomplishing their objectives and how well they
are working Locally. While national statistics are important, there is no
substitute for the evaluations of those who are closest to the scene, and so
I am seeking your help.
One or more of the economic opportunity programs is operating in your
community and short questionnaires referring to those which are in your com-
munity and about which you may have knowledge are enclosed.
I ask that you give sufficient time to your responses to make them as
complete as possible, It would be most useful if, in addition to checking the
box which best summarizes your observations, you would also provide your own
comments in the spaces provided on the questionnaires.
By giving us the benefit of your judgment and experience, you will be
rendering a service to the Congress and to the country. I thank you in advance
for your help and appreciate your continuing efforts on behalf of the poor.
Sincerely, — Ps
