This chapter chronicles the Reagan administration's elimination of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), and its massive cutbacks on funding for community programs in the 1980s, which marked a turning point for the NCNW and for wider progressive activism. As federal funding became scarce and highly restrictive, activists increasingly relied on foundations and the nonprofit sector. However, foundations were also influenced by the ascendancy of conservative critiques of social programs and implemented their own requirements for evaluation; in the practice of random assignment research, one person seeking services would have to be turned away for each person receiving them in order to have a “control group” against which to measure program effectiveness.

Keywords:   CETA, NCNW, progressive activism, nonprofit sector, control group
