Community Development Working Group

The Western Rural Development Center's Western Extension Community Development Working Group was formed to share best practices; discuss emerging regional issues; identify gaps in research and outreach; identify topics and funding sources to pursue multi-state grant funding and then create and submit grant proposals; identify members of the work group to research and publish briefs on relevant, regional topics to be published by the WRDC; develop and deliver online training modules on community development topics useful to those working in Extension and across disciplines; and develop materials on community development response, resiliency, and rebuilding during and following a pandemic.
