Rural Development

The National Alliance for Rural Policy's "Investments in Rural America" webinar series explores a wide variety of issues that affect resource flows into America's rural communities, including:

• What kinds of resources are likely to be available in the new economy?

• Government, the private sector, and philanthropy are all expected to play important roles, but with what changes and conditions?

• What can rural communities do to position themselves, either on their own or in regional partnerships, as attractive prospects for investment?
