RAFI USA - Farmers of Color Network Grants
The Rural Partners Network (RPN) is an alliance of federal agencies and commissions working directly with rural communities to expand rural prosperity through job creation, infrastructure development, and community improvement.
Rural Americans are working hard to take care of our families and communities. When we have the right tools and opportunities, everyone prospers–because what happens in rural America matters, no matter where you live.
We need policies that support good rural jobs, protect our natural resources, and invest in vibrant small towns where people want to live, work, and raise a family. Many of these important decisions are made at the state level. Learn how state legislators can use the Blueprint for Rural Policy Action in the States to create the thriving America of tomorrow.
