Rural Communities Initiative

Given the continued scale of poverty and limited job opportunities in rural areas, the Office of Family Assistance implemented the Rural Communities Initiative in early 2008. The Initiative provided States, Tribes, and local TANF agencies the opportunity to share information and innovative strategies on critical rural issues and barriers to employment such as education, job skills, transportation, and child care. This page provides information on the Initiative, and various reports, technical assistance events, Web casts, teleconferences, environmental scans, fact sheets, and Academy reports.
