Invest in the local governments, schools, and institutions that help a community thrive.
Rebuild Local Government and Institutional Capacity
- Federal: Expand rural economic development and job creation by passing the Rebuild Rural America Act. The bill establishes a $50 billion grant fund, creates federal training and technical support, establishes a state-by-state rural innovation and partnership administration to coordinate efforts, and creates a “Rural Future Corps” to support essential development.
- State: Create Departments of Rural Prosperity that work to balance economic growth with rural livability and a clean environment.
