Abstract

Direct federal support and corporate philanthropy are two of the many mechanisms of social service delivery in the U. S. The ongoing federal retrenchment reflects both a public decision to reduce the overall level of spending and a pressure to reallocate responsibility for providing some social services from one source to another. The success of this reallocation depends on the match between provider abilities and incentives and the characteristics of the social programs demanded from that provider. The author draws from theory and recent history a partial list of cnteria for policymakers to consider in deciding who should be responsible for providing various public services.
