Plan of Work
Turning Challenges into Opportunities
FY 2010

Introduction

The plan showcases the three major priorities that emerged as a product of a thorough and thoughtful dialogue with rural development stakeholders in the region. These three priorities are:

  1. Fostering Civic-Minded Communities;
  2. Building Economically Vibrant Communities;
  3. Expanding Opportunities for Distressed and Low-Wealth Communities.

The following document outlines the Center's FY2010 plan of work. That plan of work is the result of careful input provided by the Center's 15-member Technical and Operational Advisory Committee and its 11-person Board of Directors. As such, it delineates key activities that the SRDC will continue in FY10, as well as new efforts that it will launch in order to further advance the Center's important priorities.
