Federal-Local Relations Under Block Grants
Richard P. Nathan and Paul R. Dommel report on changes that occurred in the pattern of federal-local relations as a result of the consolidation in 1974 of federal categorical aid programs for physical development into "community development block grants." They find that more decentralized decision making has occurred under the block grant system, but that as the program progressed, there was evidence of increased federal control.
