pp. 1-3

Have recent developments in intergovernmental administration been "profoundly" modifying traditional relationships between national, state, and local governments in the American federal system?

pp. 21-38

In contrast to the variety of welfare programs involved, the pattern of agencies through which most of them are administered can be described quite simply.

pp. 39-46

When the five-year program of research on the intergovernmental relations of Minnesota (of which the study of intergovernmental relations in welfare has been a part) was started in 1947, it was declared that the work was "being undertaken not for the sake of Minnesota but rather on the assumption that Minnesota is a fairly typical state in which to explore extensively and intensively the problems of intergovernmental relations that confront all the states in the Union."1 ...

Chapter 5. Supervisory Relationships Between National, State, and Local Government Welfare Agencies in Administration of Public Assistance and Child Welfare Services

pdf iconDownload PDF

pp. 47-97

In comparing the national government's general legal power over Minnesota with Minnesota's general legal authority over her local subdivisions in the planning and administration of public assistance and child welfare programs, certain differences are obvious. In enumerating the powers of the national government, the authors of the federal Constitution included no direct power over social welfare programs. ...

pp. 126-152

In a survey conducted in 1948 among state administrative officials by the Council of State Governments, more than half of the state welfare officials testified that they were not satisfied with "existing provisions relative to the apportionment of funds among the states." Among other groups of officials this was not true. ...

Chapter 8. Problem of Integration Of Grants

pp. 153-168

From time to time since the latter part of the nineteenth century, as we have shown, the national government has singled out portions of state welfare programs for special financial assistance. At the present time there are national grants-in-aid to states for disabled soldiers' and sailors' homes, old age assistance, aid to the blind, aid to dependent children, and children in need of welfare services. ...

Chapter 9. Problem of Local Administrative Areas

pdf iconDownload PDF

pp. 169-177

In the opinion of some Minnesota state and county welfare officials, some counties in Minnesota are too small in area or population for effective welfare administration. Especially where small areas and limited populations coincide with poor financial resources, these persons feel, there is a need to overhaul welfare administrative districts in the state.2 ...

Chapter 10. Problems of Interstate and Intercounty Relations Arising in Administration of Settlement Requirements

pp. 178-192

In themselves, settlement requirements in welfare and public assistance programs should not necessarily lead to difficulties in administration of intergovernmental welfare programs. According to legal decisions in Minnesota, the place of a person's settlement is simply the place "where he has a legal right to support if he becomes a public charge." ...
