Afternoon Ag: Minnesota Rural Equity Project
During the 2017 legislative sessions, concern is growing in regards to bridging the gap between rural and urban America. A big spotlight has landed on local rural economies and how to strengthen these Great Minnesota communities.
Join us this Thursday as we look at Growth & Justice's Minnesota Rural Equity Project with Dane Smith, President of Growth and Justice. This project, along with the help of the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities, the Greater Minnesota Partnership, and the Minnesota Asset Building Coalition, identifies legislative priorities for revitalizing local economies and reducing disparities in Greater Minnesota.
The wide-ranging initiatives provide new investments and incentives including: early childhood care and education, broadband access, specialized Career Pathways training, Local Government Aid restoration, tax credits for working families and farmers, and a “Getting to Work” bill that helps low-income workers with car repairs or donated vehicles.Listen to "Dane Smith - Minnesota Rural Equity Project" on Spreaker.
