Additional Information: On March 21, 1977, President Jimmy Carter directed six federal cabinet heads to form an urban and regional policy working group to devise the nationís first urban policy. The policy-making process ended over a year later, during which federal department officials, public interest groups, big city mayors, and state governors jousted with each other over the focus and extent of the urban policy. Find out whether the policy was a success, failure, or something else entirely. RSVP to RSVP@policy.rutgers.edu
