Abstract:
Social services, perhaps more than any other area of governmental activity, involves complex interrelationships among the federal, state, and local governments. In North Carolina most public social services programs are administered by the counties and county administration of the programs is supervised by the state. That arrangement and the intergovernmental cooperation it requires generate some special frustrations and problems. But while state administration of social services is sometimes advocated, there is no serious movement in North Carolina to adopt the state administration model that exists in other states.
