Workshop Materials: Rural Poverty and Equitable Development

Posted on: April 3rd, 2013 by Brett Schwartz

These materials are from the “Rural Poverty and Equitable Development” session held at the Prosperous Places workshop in Salt Lake City, March 25-26.  Organized by NADO and Envision Utah (http://www NULL.envisionutah NULL.org/), this workshop brought together around 50 HUD Sustainable Communities grantees, experts, and capacity-builders to focus on place-based local economic development strategies and scenarios planning.

In this session, Danielle Bergstrom (PolicyLink (http://www NULL.policylink NULL.org/)) discussed how rural and small communities are working to improve local conditions for economic inclusion by growing small businesses, coordinating infrastructure development, working with immigrant populations, partnering with local anchor institutions, and linking workforce pathways to opportunity.  Bill Vanderwall (Minnesota Housing Project (http://www NULL.mhponline NULL.org/)) also discussed the Fair Housing Equity Assessment and Regional Analysis of Impediments.
