El Proyecto del Barrio, a human-services group hard hit by the Jan. 17 earthquake, was among several social services agencies to receive grants from telecommunications giant AT&T on Monday. The medical clinic and social services agency, which received $6,000, has been operating out of a borrowed mobile home parked in front of its yellow-tagged rental building since the temblor. Though the money won't allow the agency to reopen its building, it can help boost services.

American Telephone & Telegraph Co. said Thursday that it will cut 14,000 to 15,000 jobs in its telephone services unit over the next two years, a move the company says will save $900 million annually and enable it to stay competitive in the cutthroat long-distance business. The job reductions are the latest in a seemingly endless series of layoffs by blue-chip corporations, whose executives say they must reduce bureaucracy and cut costs to compete in the 1990s.
