RCDI-Capacity Assistance for Regional Economies

Although many parts of Arkansas have prospered thanks to increased economic development, rural areas of the state are still plagued by high levels of unemployment and poverty. Because municipalities and other locally based organizations are on the front lines of addressing these problems, it’s vital their leaders have the knowledge to develop effective strategies to build strong local economies. Winrock provides training to help leaders identify an area’s needs and develop proven approaches to train workers, attract businesses and take advantage of unique local assets.
