Monitoring the Block Grant Program for Community Development
Richard P. Nathan, Paul R. Dommel, Sarah F. Liebschutz, and Milton D. Morris report on the impact of the block grant program authorized by the Housing and Community Development Act Of 1974. They find that under the new program, "generalist" local officials have gained a more prominent role in deciding how the grant money is spent, citizen participation in the decision-making process has increased, and there has been a focus on capital spending. The authors also find that the distribution formula has favored small and suburban jurisdictions while disadvantaging older and more distressed central cities.
