Challenges of Rural Communities

This week on Grantchat we welcome Jenny Braswell to talk about the unique challenges rural communities face when they seek, compete for, and implement grant awards. Do you manage a rural program or provide grant development services for rural projects? Then you know how difficult it can be to find funding opportunities, meet the funder’s eligibility criteria, and to implement larger scale projects. Jenny has some suggestions, resources and not-so-secret secrets to addressing the challenges faced by rural communities when they are seeking funds, building partnerships, and building programs.
