Rural Funders Peer Network: Rural Capacity Building–The Rural Partners Network

The Rural Partners Network (RPN) is a government program where a number of federal agencies collaborate together with rural communities to find resources and funding to create jobs, build infrastructure, and support long-term economic stability. RPN has created community networks in several states to help federal agencies develop improved service delivery models, program processes, and funding priorities for the benefit of rural communities nationwide. Join us for a conversation to learn more about the work of RPN, how family funders are successfully collaborating with this network, and how your community can connect with RPN resources.

If you are unable to attend this event, but are interested in being a part of the Rural Funders Peer Network, sign up here. For this interactive meeting, we encourage attendees to join with webcams on. To help foster candid discussions, peer network events are not recorded.
