Project Title: Creating Regional Economies and Technical Expertise
America’s wealth gap is prevalent across rural and urban communities. Much of Arkansas is rural and prospers, but poverty and unemployment continue to plague many areas of the state. Citizens and community leaders lack access to technical know-how that would move these areas forward. Through the Creating Regional Economies and Technical Expertise project, Winrock provides training and assistance—developed and honed through its experience with similar economy-boosting projects in the United States—to local leaders and business organizations.
