To identify trends in state and local programs for retarded persons, the 51 state mental retardation coordinators were surveyed. Through telephone interviews information was obtained on the following topics: organization of state services, regional and local service patterns, the role of the private sector, budgetary trends, program trends, the impact of federal assistance, and the effects of recent legal rights developments. Among major findings were that 29 states, plus the District of Columbia, have made major realignments in state mental retardation services over the past 5 years; that almost all states were implementing some form of regional or county based service delivery system; that 20 respondents reported the area of community services as the fastest growing segment of their budget; and that 38 state coordinators ranked Medicaid and social services as the most important sources of federal revenue.
