Earlier this month, nearly 300 rural stakeholders, leaders, and advocates convened for the 13th Annual Rural Policy Forum, hosted by the Arizona Rural Development Council (AZRDC). Representatives from all 15 counties traversed the state for the two-day conference in the White Mountains, eager to seek new solutions for building stronger, more resilient rural economies across Arizona.
The 13th annual Rural Policy Forum is right around the corner, featuring the ever-coveted Funders Roundtable. At every forum, attendees have the opportunity to connect with key, state-wide funders and learn about the specific programs and funding mechanisms available to their rural and tribal communities.
Earlier this month, the Arizona Rural Policy Forum brought rural economic development professionals, nonprofits, community leaders, business owners, and other rural stakeholders to the Town of Wickenburg to share resources, empowering stories of success, and visions for the sustainable future of our Rural communities.
